Anti-Semitic graffiti scrawled at Tarzana synagogue


TARZANA (CNS) – Police today were investigating an act of anti-Semitic
vandalism at a synagogue in Tarzana.
City Councilman Bob Blumenfield tweeted that hateful, profane graffiti
was scrawled at the Mishkan Torah synagogue at 5552 Reseda Blvd., near
Ventura Boulevard.
“It’s really hurtful, all the members here are being hurt,”
synagogue Executive Director Rabbi Shlomo Haghighi told KCAL9. “It’s such a
thing that someone (passes) by the synagogue and (writes) something on the
wall. It’s hurtful.”
According to the Los Angeles Police Department, the vandalism was
reported about 9:55 a.m. Tuesday, the same day it emerged that Turkish flags
were hung at two Armenian schools in the San Fernando Valley.
The Turkish Ottoman Empire is blamed for the deaths of more than one
million Armenians about a century ago. Turkey denies allegations of genocide.
Blumenfield said he was awaiting news from the LAPD about the
synagogue graffiti and that he and his staff “stand ready to assist if there
is anything we can do to help.”
