California JCC gets anti-Semitic letter

A California JCC received an anti-Semitic letter less than two weeks after swastikas were found on the door of a nearby city council member’s office. Officials at the Valley Cities Jewish Community Center in Sherman Oaks notified police on Wednesday that they had received the letter, according to a news report.The letter follows the May 3 discovery of three swastikas and an anti-Semitic note posted on the front door of Los Angeles City Councilman Jack Weiss’ office. Police are investigating the letter as a hate “incident” rather than a hate “crime” because no violent threats were used.
