Sacramento synagogue hit with anti-Semitic vandalism

(JTA) — A Sacramento synagogue was the target of anti-Semitic vandalism.

Members of the Orthodox synagogue Kenesset Israel Torah Center in the California capital discovered spray-painted swastikas and other graffiti, including demonic symbols and hate rhetoric, on the morning of Jan. 1, Jweekly reported. It is the second act of vandalism on a Sacramento-area synagogue in two months.

Four cars parked near the synagogue also were vandalized.

The spray-painted epithets were removed by the end of the day by a member of a neighboring church who specializes in removing graffiti.
