Swastika Painted On Jewish Temple During Holiday
On the holiest day of the year on the Jewish calendar, the Temple Beth Shalom in Spokane was vandalized during Saturday’s concluding Yom Kippur service, with a swastika painted on the concrete wall in the temple’s enclosed courtyard.
[su_center_ad]According to The Spokesman-Review, Rabbi Tamar Malino said the congregation is working with the Spokane Police Department. Police are investigating the vandalism and reviewing security footage.
“The mark is being removed immediately, and both the Temple Beth Shalom, and Congregation Emanu-el communities continue to show strength and calm in the face of this hateful act,” Malino said.
She added, “They’re taking every security precaution to keep the building, and all who enter it, safe.”
