Year.

Reported anti- semitic incidents on u-k's campus and in georgetown prompted a leader in u-k's jewish community to create a new online class on jewish ethics.

Rabbi shlomo litvin says earlier this week...anti- abortionists rallying on u-k's campus compared abortion to the holocaust...a move he says deeply affected jewish students and trivialized the deeply rooted trauma surrounding the holocaust.

Another incident...litvin says students were heard talking about urinating on the jewish student center's front lawn as they walked past.

Also...rabbi litvin says anti-semitic and racist flyers were put in several mailboxes in a subdivision in georgetown...simili ar to the ones that littered lexington last year.

Last week's we reported some members of a fraternity on u-k's campus reportedly greeted a pledge with a nazi salute.

Rabbi litvin says it's not that he wants to keep shining a light on these issues...but it's necessary.

"we will be there everytime this needs to be answered.

We will be there with moral education.

We will be there with light to fight back darkness because darkness folds in the presence of light and we won't ignore seemingly small acts of hate because they aren't small acts of hate."

The classes will begin next wednesday at 8 p-m and will be held weekly.
