The Israel Police are investigating who drew a crude likeness of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler's face on the exterior of a Tel Aviv synagogue.
- Car set ablaze, Hebrew graffiti spray-painted in suspected East Jerusalem hate crime
- Artist paints over anti-Semitic graffiti that marred his Berlin Wall mural
- Mysterious ancient mikveh with Aramaic graffiti found while building a school in Jerusalem
To the left of the image, the nonsensical word "Heilike" in English letters was spray-painted (in theory, it could be a woman's name). To its right, the same word appears in Hebrew letters, as well as the words, also in Hebrew, "In practice, Hitler was a Jew."
The defaced synagogue is among a number of buildings defaced by graffiti along Tel Aviv's Aharon Chelouche Street, which is in the high-end neighborhood of Neve Tzedek.
