Jewish institutions in California and Georgia again were the targets of anti-Semitic vandalism.
Temple Ner Tamid, a Conservative synagogue northeast of San Diego, was defaced with a swastika over the Labor Day weekend. It was the third time since April that the synagogue was the target of anti-Semitic graffiti, the San Diego Sheriff’s Department said.
In Sandy Springs, Ga., a community north of Atlanta, a swastika was found painted Sunday morning on a stop sign near a Jewish day school, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. Last month, a swastika was painted on a speed bump near the Epstein School.
Authorities in both cases are offering cash rewards for information leading to arrests.
The Anti-Defamation League, in cooperation with other groups, is offering an $11,500 reward for information leading to an arrest in the California case.
In Sandy Springs, police announced Tuesday that they were doubling the reward being offered, from $2,500 to $5,000, for information leading to an arrest and conviction.
