Antisemitic graffiti was found on a Persian synagogue in Los Angeles on April 7, according to a Facebook post. The graffiti states, “F— k—s” and then the words “Daniel M” on the Orthodox synagogue Ahavat Shalom on West Pico Boulevard. Nathan Benyowitz, a University of Delaware student who is visiting family in the Pico-Robertson area because of the coronavirus pandemic, posted a photo of the graffiti to his Facebook page. He wrote that he saw the graffiti as he was taking a walk with his mother.

“ENOUGH IS ENOUGH,” he wrote. “There is no room for hatred in this world especially during these times. This is a time that we have to all come together as one. Am Yisrael Chai!”

Associate Dean and Director of Global Social Action Agenda at the Simon Wiesenthal Center Rabbi Abraham Cooper also said in a statement to the Journal, “Less than a mile from headquarters of SWC and [the] Museum of Tolerance, this Persian Synagogue [was] targeted by anti-Semites [on] Passover Eve. No cure yet for history’s oldest hate.”
