Washington: Seattle


SEATTLE — Temple De Hirsch Sinai, the largest synagogue in the Pacific Northwest, has been vandalized with anti-Semitic and Holocaust-denying graffiti on shabbat.

“It was just horrifically disturbing graffiti that kind of encompassed all classic anti-Semitic tropes of Holocaust denial and of Jewish affinity for money,” Weiner sad in an interview with KOMO News Radio. “It was immensely troubling and immensely disturbing and shocking to me and to our community.”

The incident comes amid a wave of threats against Jewish community centers across the country.
