Vladivostok shul vandalized, again

Vandals scrawled swastikas and anti-Semitic slogans on the walls of Vladivostok’s main synagogue Friday. It was the second time in less than six months that the building has been defaced, The Associated Press reported. Jewish community leaders in the city on Russia’s Pacific coast alerted police after they arrived at the synagogue in the morning and found its door and outer walls covered with swastikas and slogans. Two adjacent buildings also were defaced. A similar incident occurred at the synagogue in October.
