A renovated synagogue in Russia repeatedly has been defaced with swastikas. The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee and the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia jointly funded the project, which involved adding the new building to the synagogue in Kostroma, northeast of Moscow. There was a still-unsolved arson at the synagogue last summer.
