California Synagogue Vandalized With Anti-Semitic Graffiti Days After Pittsburgh

Anti-Semitic graffiti has been found sprayed on a Southern California synagogue, just four days after a shooter in Pittsburgh killed 11 in the deadliest attack against the Jewish community in U.S. history. The Irvine Police Department said the vandal’s message was put on the side of the Beth Jacob Synagogue 1 a.m. Wednesday. CCTV shows a hoodie-wearing suspect fleeing the scene on a bike. “I just feel very sad that in America, in 2018, we still have to worry about anti-Semitism,” said Allen Berezovsky, president of the temple’s board. Irvine Mayor Don Wagner said he was disgusted by the incident, as well as recent graffiti found at a nearby community college, saying: “These two local acts of hate, and even more so the senseless, wanton murder of 11 innocent people in Pittsburgh, remind us that historical prejudices remain alive in evil people.”
