Philadelphia Kosher Butcher Shop Vandalized With Anti-Semitic Graffiti

A kosher butcher shop in Philadelphia was defaced with anti-Semitic graffiti.

Crude swastikas were painted on the butcher shop, Simon’s Glatt Kosher meats, between the evening of Sept. 10 and the next morning, the Jewish Exponent reported.

The butcher store has been at its location for 20 years. A nearby synagogue was similarly vandalized in June.

There are no witnesses and no suspects in either case.

“The defacement of public property in Philadelphia with swastikas represents an attack on the entire community,” Anti-Defamation League associate regional director Joshua Cohen told the Jewish Exponent. “The swastika is a universal symbol of hate meant to instill fear and intimidation. It’s clear that the perpetrator intended to not only damage property but also to send a message of hate to the entire community.”
