Following the fire at University of Delaware’s Chabad Center for Jewish Life being declared arson, City of Newark Mayor Jerry Clifton issued the following statement:

"It is heartbreaking to learn the fire at the Chabad Center was set intentionally. This is a sickening act of hostility that threatens the safety and security of our inclusive, welcoming neighborhoods. My thoughts are with the Jewish community and those affected by this tragedy. I have faith that the Newark Police Department and partner agencies will work tirelessly to identify the individual or individuals responsible and bring them to justice."

Anyone with information on last night’s fire is urged to contact the fire marshal at 302.323.5375 or Crime Stoppers at 1.800.TIP.3333.
