A swastika was painted onto a building near Sixth and Lincoln Streets. Chabad at IU, a Jewish student organization, posted photos and videos of the incident on their Instagram story Saturday evening. 

this off-campus incident coincides with Hanukkah. After discovering the symbol off campus, Chabad leaders responded by lighting the traditional Hanukkah candles in front of the swastika Saturday evening. 

“It is not a place of hate,” Rabbi Levi Cunin said during the candle lighting in a video on their Instagram story. “Campus is a place of love. We will therefore be spreading love.”
