Antisemitic Slurs Spray-Painted on Homes, Cars; Done During Services at San Antonio Synagogue

Police in San Antonio, Texas are investigating an extensive case of antisemitic vandalism in which graffiti was found spray-painted on more than 30 homes and vehicles today (August 12, 2015) in a predominantly Jewish community, according to the Algemeiner website.

Members of the area's Rodfei Sholom Congregation discovered the vandalism in the area around the synagogue after they finished morning prayers today. The graffiti included images of swastikas, "KKK" lettering, and other hateful slurs.

One vehicle had the word "Jew" spray-painted on it and a large rock thrown through the driver-side window.

"We are outraged that in this day and age there are people who still live in their own minds and own worlds where it seems to be okay to hate people based on their religion," said Howard Feinberg, a board member at the congregation.
