CARMEL — More than 1,000 community leaders, faith leaders and residents filled the Congregation Shaarey Tefilla Monday evening in a massive show of support to the synagogue after anti-Semitic graffiti was discovered on the property over the weekend.


“‘Those who love God hate evil,’” Rabbi Benjamin Sendrow said, addressing the crowd. “…There is no better way than to fight evil with arms linked as a community.”

The graffiti, which depicted Nazi flags and iron crosses, was spray-painted on the walls of a brick shed on the property. There also appeared to be burn marks in the grass in front of one of the flags and on the wall.

The vandalism is believed to have occurred late Friday or early Saturday and was discovered Saturday morning. Carmel police and federal authorities are investigating.
