Vandalism strikes Portland Jewish institutions

(JTA) – Two Jewish institutions in Portland, Ore. — a synagogue and a community center — were defaced with racist graffiti.

“White power” was written in red spray-paint on promotional banners at the Mittleman Jewish Community Center and Neveh Shalom, a Conservative synagogue, on June 27, police said, according to The Oregonian. Both institutions are located in southwest Portland.

Authorities are seeking a man in his early 20s who was spotted in the area shortly before the graffiti was discovered.
