Anti-Semitic Vandals Hit Car in Boston

A Jewish-owned car in the Boston area was keyed with a swastika and an anti-Semitic epithet.

The car was vandalized on the eve of Passover. It was parked near a synagogue in the upscale Brighton neighborhood. A swastika was also scratched into a delivery truck parked nearby, according to a statement from the Anti-Defamation League.

“When two incidents of hate occur near a temple at the start of a major Jewish holiday, it reminds us that anti-Semitism still exists and demands that all members of our shared community confront acts of hate as attacks on everyone who values decency and respect,” ADL Regional Director Derrek L. Shulman said in a statement.

There have been other acts of vandalism against the synagogue in recent months, according to reports.
