Synagogue in Colorado Springs Is Defaced

A Colorado synagogue was spray-painted with anti-Semitic graffiti in honor of Adolf Hitler’s birthday.

The walls and door of Temple Beit Torah in Colorado Springs was discovered on the morning of April 20 with swastikas and “Happy 4:20” (the date of Hitler’s birth).

April 20 is also the anniversary of the 1999 Columbine High School shooting in the state.

Police are calling the attack “criminal mischief,” according to the Colorado Springs Gazette.

The graffiti was painted over in time for Friday night services at the synagogue.
