Indiana synagogue vandalized with Nazi graffiti

By The Associated Press

CARMEL — Police are searching for whoever spray-painted anti-Semitic graffiti at a suburban Indianapolis synagogue.

Congregation Shaarey Tefilla in Carmel says the vandalism was done early Saturday to the bricks making up a shed for the synagogue’s garbage container. Images posed online show a large Nazi flag among the symbols.

The synagogue said its Saturday services weren’t affected.

Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard on Sunday condemned the vandalism and said the city’s police department was seeking to apprehend those responsible.

The Indianapolis Jewish Community Relations Council says it has been in contact with police agencies and area synagogues to ensure necessary steps were being taken to further secure their facilities.
