Antisemitic graffiti at the Macedonia Baptist Church in Great Barrington

Great Barrington, MA
- Police are continuing to investigate an antisemitic graffiti incident last week at a downtown church.

The Great Barrington Police Department was notified on Sunday that offensive words were scrawled on the Macedonia Baptist Church on Rosseter Street. The graffiti was found Thursday by a church custodian.

The custodian did not share the discovery with church leaders, including Rev. Joallen Forte, until Sunday, Sept. 27, when police were contacted, the town said in a news release Sunday night.

Police Chief Bill Walsh told The Edge the words “Nazi Kyke” were written on the west-side exterior of the church, facing away from Main Street. The church is at 9 Rosseter St., next to the rear entrance of the Salisbury Bank office on Main Street.
