NEW HAVEN — Area synagogues and Jewish community agencies are on security alert after graffiti in a Yale University chemistry building threatened arson at Yale’s Slifka Center for Jewish Life later this month.
The graffiti was discovered April 22 in a bathroom at the Sterling Chemistry Lab at 225 Prospect St. Although the university would not release details of the graffiti, those with information about it said it referenced both the Slifka Center and the date May 16. It also appeared to threaten arson.
May 16 is the second day of Shavuot, a Jewish holiday.
