Sydney Teen Who Made Anti-Semitic Remarks Ordered to Attend Shabbat Dinner

1 minute read

A Sydney teenager who drunkenly yelled anti-Semitic remarks has been ordered to visit a Jewish museum, attend a Shabbat dinner and read Night by Elie Wiesel.

The decision comes months after a group of five teenagers yelled remarks like “Heil Hitler” and “Kill the Jews” at a group of Jewish children, some as young as six, aboard a Sydney bus, according to a The Times of Israel report. Two of the other teens received a warning while the other two went unpunished.

The punishment was reached through mutual agreement at a meeting meeting the teenagers and the children they harassed.

“It gave her an opportunity to question the offender, to hear from him and to hear him express remorse for his actions,” said Vic Alhadeff, a Jewish community leader who attended the meeting.
