Antisemitic Flyers Found at Temple Emanuel in Winston-Salem, North Carolina

White supremacist propaganda was found last week at Temple Emanuel in Winston-Salem and on a blog naming the synagogue. The propaganda contained offensive and disturbing content.

Officials declined to reveal its details, but it was bad enough that the temple called the police, the FBI and other authorities and has hired extra security during the High Holy Days. Rosh Hashana ended yesterday and Yom Kippur will be celebrated next week.

“Unfortunately, we have seen a very substantial increase of the use of propaganda and literature to create intimidation and fear,” Doron Ezickson, a spokesman for the Anti-Defamation League, said in a phone interview. “In the environment that we are experiencing right now, with incidents of active violence in houses of worship, it is very prudent of the synagogue to have been communicating the facts and for law enforcement to be aware.”

“At this point, I can confirm that the WSPD is investigating an incident regarding a document which contained offensive/disturbing content,” Captain C.A. Lowder said. “The investigation is active and outside law enforcement agencies through our assigned Task Force Officers are currently assisting our agency.”
