Disgusting Antisemite Vandalizes Chicago Synagogue With Swastikas

The Chicago Loop Synagogue was vandalized and plastered with swastika stickers early Saturday morning, an act that law enforcement authorities are treating as a hate crime.

Surveillance footage from outside the place of worship shows a white man dressed in all black jumping out of a dark-colored SUV. He runs up to the synagogue’s front doors and affixes two swastika stickers before producing a metal object from inside his jacket and smashing an adjoining window.

Police promptly responded to the scene as a “criminal damage in progress” call but were unable to apprehend the suspect, who was wearing a dark face mask.

Now, worshipers and residents of the area have come together to seek justice for the seemingly random act of destruction. The American Jewish Committee’s Chicago Office also condemned the attack and called on the community to rally behind the Chicago Loop Synagogue.

A reward for information leading to the vandal’s capture is expected to be announced soon; Chicago police have yet to obtain any solid leads in the case.
