Swastikas painted on Morrison synagogue highlight spike in anti-Semitic vandalism

| January 13, 2013

MORRISON, Colo. — The Anti-Defamation League was up in arms Thursday after two incidents of vandalism targeted a Morrison synagogue last week. In both incidents, a swastika was spray painted on a sign in front of the B’nai Chaim Synagogue.

The League was particularly worried because this isn’t the only incident of anti-Semitic vandalism to be reported in Colorado recently. According to the ADL, swastikas have also been painted on properties in Boulder, Colorado Springs and Conifer “over the past few months.”

According to the ADL, the swastikas appeared on the Morrison synagogue towards the end of last week. No particular time frame was given for the vandalism in the three other cities.

“It is also not known if there is any connection between these actions,” ADL Mountain States Regional Director Scott L. Levin said.
