USA - Antisemitic graffiti at Temple Emanu-El in Miami Beach

Miami Beach, FL
- Detectives are searching for an anti-Semitic vandal who targeted a historic temple with a hostile message during Hannukah.

The vandal used a marker to draw a swastika on a door at Temple Emanu-El at Washington Avenue and 17th Street in Miami Beach. A woman told police it happened between 11 p.m. on Saturday and 8 a.m. on Sunday.

“Every time something like this happens it’s very shocking, particularly during the week of Hannukah when we try to increase light in the world, and you have an act like this that is meant to bring darkness in the world,” Rabbi Mark Philippe said on Monday.
