USA - Swastikas carved into sign at Temple Beth Sholom in Framingham

Framingham, MA
- Leaders at a Jewish temple in Framingham say they found swastikas carved into their sign Thursday morning — one day after the end of Rosh Hashanah celebrations.

Jaime Dotan showed her children the two hand-sized swastikas that were carved into a wooden sign that stands in front of Temple Beth Sholom on Pamela Road as the family attended services around the high holidays.

The temple also happens to house the Metro West Jewish Day School.

The sign has already been repaired and painted over, and some who live nearby say that whoever did this is not welcome in town.

Police say no arrests have been made, but the investigation remains open and active. They say actions like this will not be tolerated.
