Two synagogues were vandalized Tuesday in the Ukrainian city Dnepropetrovsk. Anti-Semitic graffiti was painted on the walls of the Small and Central Synagogues and on a building next to one of the shuls. Vandals also painted the word “Zhidovskaya,” based on an ethnic slur against Jews, over one of the signboards on Sholom Aleichem Street. No arrests have been made.
