A Columbia Teachers College professor whose office was vandalized with anti-Semitic images earlier this week lit the first Hanukkah candle on the campus menorah in front of a crowd of students, faculty and other members of the Columbia University community in New York City.

Professor Elizabeth Midlarsky, a psychology and education scholar whose work includes Holocaust studies, discovered her office at 120th Street near Broadway defaced with two large spray-painted swastikas and the anti-Semitic slur “Yid” on Nov. 28. Her office was vandalized in 2007 as well.
