Seattle Area Synagogue Vandalized with Antisemitic Graffiti

Herzl-Ner Tamid Conservative Congregation in Mercer Island was vandalized with hateful, antisemitic graffiti. Mercer Island Police said synagogue members found the building had been defaced Wednesday morning.

“It’s horrific and heartbreaking,” Daniel Weiner, Rabbi of Temple de Hirsch Sinai Seattle Bellevue, said.

The advocacy organization fighting antisemitism – StopAntisemitism – posted a video of the hateful graffiti onto their “X” channel.

It’s the latest organization to be targeted after suspicious packages were sent to two Jewish organizations on the island.

The FBI sent KIRO 7 a statement saying, “FBI Seattle is aware of the incident and is communicating with Mercer Island Police regarding the details. We have offered assistance should it be necessary.”

Neither the City of Mercer Island nor the police department have not released an official statement about this incident.
