There have been serious problems at JCCs in the San Fernando Valley before. Like Buford O. Furrow problems. On Monday, someone reportedly threw a Molotov cocktail at The New JCC at Milkin in the West Valley. No one was injured.

“In a city defined by unparalleled diversity, hate crimes of any kind will not be tolerated, and this incident will not go unanswered,” Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said in a statement. “In one voice, we must condemn this attack. As one city, we must work to ensure that no Angeleno is forced to fear for their lives or their safety because of their race, religion or ethnicity.”

The early Monday attack at the Milken campus in West Hills, which police were investigating as a possible hate crime, came a month after neighbors in upscale parts of Encino and Tarzana awoke to find swastikas and epithets like “F—- Jews” and “Burn Jews” spray-painted in front of four homes.
