Synagogue officials say that they have discovered a number of swastikas carved into the windows of IKAR Synagogue in Los Angeles.
A joint statement released by Chief Executive Melissa Balaban, Chair Ethan Goldstine and Vice Chair Michelle Rosenthal, suggested that the incident took place the night of 26th May or the morning of 27th May, and expressed their distress about the attack, although they also said that they were unsurprised.
The statement said: “Fortunately no one was present or physically harmed. We have alerted the relevant authorities and we are taking all measures to keep our staff and community safe, including reviewing security footage to see if we can get further insight into the attack, and revisiting our security protocols for all locations where IKARites meet, work, and learn.”
