Chicago Synagogue Hit by Vandals

The words “Jews murder” were spray-painted outside one of Chicago’s oldest congregations.

The graffiti was discovered early Wednesday morning on the Anshe Emet synagogue on the North Side, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. The congregation, which is nearly 140 years old, has been at its current location since 1929.

Police are investigating the vandalism, according to the newspaper.
