National Christian Leader Responds to Anti-Semitic Graffiti at Sixth & I Synagogue 

 

Washington, D.C. -- Over the weekend, historic Sixth & I Synagogue in Washington, D.C. was vandalized with anti-Semitic graffiti. While damage to the structure was minimal and a suspect was arrested, the community’s rabbis connect the attack with broader anti-Semitic patterns nationally.

 

Rev. Jennifer Butler, CEO, Faith in Public Life (Washington, DC):

“I mourn this latest attack on the Jewish community and Sixth & I Synagogue. This anti-Semitic vandalism is part of a pattern of rising white-nationalist violence which endangers Jewish lives. I will continue to pray for the safety and flourishing of our Jewish neighbors.”
