Boston-area Chabad center vandalized with Russian graffiti

    (JTA) — A man was captured on surveillance video writing what police say is anti-Semitic graffiti in Russian on the wall of a Boston-area Chabad Center.

    He also drew a symbol that closely resembles a swastika above the words, the Boston-area ABC affiliate WCVB reported.

    The Brookline Police Department said it was investigating the Sunday night incident as a hate crime in a statement posted on social media.

    The Anti-Defamation League of New England is offering a $1,000 reward leading to the arrest of the vandal.

    “This anti-Semitic act represents a direct threat to the Jewish community and is a reminder that hate never rests, even in a pandemic,” Robert Trestan, the ADL’s New England regional director, said in a statement.
