Synagogue Desecrated in Vladivostok

A Synagogue in Vladivostok was desecrated on Friday, its facade and doors covered with swastikas.

The Jewish religious-cultural community center noted that the vandals chose to act on the eve of the Sabbath and shortly before the Purim holiday, which will be celebrated next Sunday.

It is not the first time that synagogues in Vladivostok have been the targets of attacks. In November 2006, the walls of a synagogue were covered with anti-Semitic slogans and swastikas. The perpetrators have yet to be found, according to the website Vesti.ru.
