Temple Beth Shalom announced in a press release today that during the concluding Yom Kippur service, the holiest day on the Jewish calendar, it was noticed that a swastika had been painted on the concrete wall in the temple’s enclosed courtyard.
Rabbi Tamar Malino said in a press release that the congregation is working with the Spokane Police Department regarding the incident and that police are investigating the vandalism and reviewing security footage.
“The mark is being removed immediately, and both the Temple Beth Shalom, and Congregation Emanu-el communities continue to show strength and calm in the face of this hateful act,” she said in the release.
