(photo credit: EDIE LANDMAN)Grand Rapids, MIA rabbi from Temple Emanuel in Grand Rapids says he discovered anti-Semitic posters outside the synagogue.

He found the posters around 8 a.m. Sunday morning. People who attend the synagogue told News 8 that the posters were near the outside parking lot doors.
The rabbi did not say exactly what was on the posters. He immediately called police.
The rabbi said his temple had never had a problem like this before. He did not change any Sunday events.
Mayor Rosalynn Bliss expressed “standing united in rejecting these acts of hatred and anti-Semitism,” on Twitter late Sunday.



Also on Sunday, U.S. Rep. Justin Amash, I-Grand Rapids, condemned the posters, tweeting that “This act of hate has no place here or anywhere” and that the community must be “united against any effort to harass or intimidate the congregation of Temple Emanuel or any of our Jewish brothers and sisters.”

No arrests had been made as of Sunday afternoon. The Grand Rapids Police Department is investigating the case as malicious destruction of property.
