Swastika Is Carved on Door of Ohio Synagogue; Words "We Will Rise and Gas You" Also Found

A swastika has been carved onto the door frame of a synagogue in northeastern Ohio, the Times of Israel website reports today (March 7, 2017).

The swastika was carved at the Agudath B'nai Israel Synagogue in Lorain, Ohio, a suburb located on the west side of Cleveland.

In addition to the swastika, the words "We will rise and gas you," followed by an expletive, also were found on the synagogue.

The hate crime at the more than 100-year-old synagogue took place on March 1, although it was first reported on March 4.
