Virginia JCC Vandalized With Anti-Semitic Graffiti For Second Time In 18 Months

The Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia was vandalized with 19 spray-painted swastikas early Saturday morning.

JCC employees discovered the vandalism when they were opening up the building that day. Security footage captured a suspect spray-painting the swastikas at around 4:30 a.m. Police are working to identify the culprit.

The JCC was also hit with vandalism on the first night of Passover last year, when someone spray-painted “Hitler was right” on the walls.

JCC members and local politicians were quick to condemn the incident.
