Seattle Synagogue Targeted by Vandals Ahead of Holocaust Remembrance Day

Temple De Hirsh Sinai in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood has once again been vandalized with antisemitic graffiti. Temple leaders discovered the damage Monday morning.

NGO StopAntisemitism shared the imagery of the antisemitic attack with their followers on Twitter.

“My first reaction was shock, disgust, and sadness,” Rabbi Daniel Weiner said. “I’m heartsick to say so, but this unfortunately is the current state of where we are as a society.”

The temple was also targeted in a similar incident back in 2017. Temple leaders said they’ve had minor incidents ever since.

“Just because it’s 2023 doesn’t mean that somehow we’ve transcended these acts of hate. In many ways, we have regressed to a darker, more abysmal place,” Weiner said.
