(September 20, 2019 / JNS) Temple Ahavat Shalom, a Reform congregation in Los Angeles, was vandalized with an anti-Semitic message.
A message of “Six million $ was not enough” was drawn in marker on the welcome sign on the temple’s gate, referring to the 6 million Jews killed in the Holocaust. The dollar sign apparently was meant to reference the anti-Semitic trope that Jews control the world’s money supply.
The LA chapter of the Anti-Defamation League called this “unacceptable.”

Police are investigating the vandalism as a possible hate crime.
