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.
