Michigan synagogue vandalized for second time in 2 months


(JTA) — A synagogue in Battle Creek, Michigan, was vandalized for the second time in two months.

A concrete carving of a menorah on the front of Temple Beth El was spray-painted with an unknown but deliberate symbol, and the word “lier,” presumably a misspelling of liar.

The vandalism was reported on Sunday morning, according to the local media.

On  Nov. 23, an unknown vandal took a hammer and chisel to the concrete menorah, damaging the carving.
