Swastika Spray Painted on Resident’s Fence in Florida

A swastika was found spray painted on the fence of a home near Boca Raton, deputies said.

The incident took place at a home located in the 22000 block of Southwest 62nd Avenue.

Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Teri Barbera said deputies responded to a criminal mischief call about the swastika.

The homeowner of the fence told the sheriff’s office that she was unaware of the damage.

She also told deputies that she is a Christian and doesn’t know who would do this.

Congregation B’Nai Israel Rabbi Rony Keller in Boca Raton told WFLX reporter Joel Lopez: “I think it’s incumbent upon us and not just the Jewish community to become educators and for us to be able to stand up together and say we will not tolerate this. We will not tolerate hate anywhere.”
