Antisemitic graffiti found at Racine synagogue

Racine, WI - Antisemitic graffiti was discovered at Racine’s Beth Israel Sinai Congregation on Sunday, Sept. 22, 2019, as board members arrived for a meeting in the afternoon.

“At first I was very angry that someone would do this,” said congregation President Joyce Placzkowski, who was first to notice the spray-painted swastika and the word “Jude,” along with three symbols that each appear to be a Nazi-style “S.”

Vandals also wrote a gang sign on a meter on the building. Police responded to the scene after the vandalism was reported.
