Temple Sinai in Oakland hit with swastika

Oakland, CA
- A swastika was discovered painted on the historic wooden sanctuary doors of Oakland’s Temple Sinai early Monday morning, Rabbi Jacqueline Mates-Muchin told Jweekly.

The graffiti was reported as a hate crime and is being investigated as such by the Oakland Police Department. It’s the latest incident of vandalism at the synagogue over the past few weeks in a series that went from paint splotches and strange drawings to the overtly antisemitic symbol.

The police have been looking through the synagogue’s security camera footage and are taking the incident very seriously, Mates-Muchin said.
