The Simon Wiesenthal Center is grateful for the LASD’s professionalism and commitment in dealing with this hate crime at Calabasas High School in Calabasas, California, (a suburb of Los Angeles). "This sends a message that any hate attack - whoever the perpetrator or whatever the target - that our law enforcement agencies will deal seriously and expeditiously with such incidents. The Jewish community will await word for District Attorney Cooley’s decision as to how best proceed in the case," said Rabbi Abraham Cooper, the Center's Associate Dean.
