A reportedly anti-Semitic letter documenting the origin of the word Jew was received today by the Valley Cities Jewish Community Center in Sherman Oaks—as if that JCC didn’t have a big enough problem. It’s being investigated as a “hate incident” because no threat was made, authorities said.

Adonis Irwin was arrested and has been charged with three felony counts.
