Antisemitic flyers were found in mailboxes and on the windshields of cars parked in a neighborhood near the University of California, Santa Barbara, according to a report by the Jewish Journal.

UCSB student senator Gabriella Shofet posted a picture of one of  the flyers to her Facebook page on March 31, the day they were discovered, which reads: “Jews worship the Devil. Jews RAPE KIDS. The Holocaust is a LIE.”
She then posted her own comments: “This is what antisemitism looks like. In 2019. A block away from my apartment. My heart aches.”

Students Supporting Israel (SSI) at UCSB then shared Shofet’s post on its Facebook page, writing: “Posted on windshields across Del Playa in Isla Vista. It’s 2019 and anti-Semitism is alive, even in our communities.”

The culprit behind the flyers has not yet been determined. Santa Barbara Hillel is encouraging anyone with information to contact the USCB Police department or the Isla Visla Foot Patrol.
