The home of Chabad at University of California Irvine and its Shluchim was a target Tuesday by unknown predators who throw a potted plant at the front window.
The object broke a glass panel of the front window at around 1:30 PM. The housekeeper was the only one home at the time and was not hurt.
Rabbi Zevi Tenenbaum and his wife Miriam who live in the house on Oxford street in Irvine regularly host Jewish students of UCI for Shabbos and holiday dinners. There is a Menorah on display in the front patio.
A police report was filed with the Irvine Police Department. “There are no leads as to who may have been the perpetrator,” Tenenbaum told COLlive.com.
The Shliach was recently in the news for setting up shop near UC Irvine’s annual “Israel Apartheid Week” organized by the Muslim Students Union (MSU).
Tenenbaum had set up a table near the flagpoles area and offered snacks and support to Jewish students during the first three days of the event, the Jewish Journal reported.
He said some Jewish students were taken aback by Neturei Karta’s participation, prompting him to hold a seminar the following day to inform students and community members about the group and its limited following, even among Chassidic Jews.
