Irvine doubles reward in anti-Semitic graffiti case

The Irvine City Council has agreed to add five-thousand dollars to the already pledged five-thousand dollars by the Anti-Defamation League to find whoever is responsible for vandalizing the Congregation Beth Jacob.

Irvine Public Affairs and Communications Director Craig Reem says on Oct. 31, someone had spray painted anti-Semitic graffiti on the temple’s building. This occurred three days after 11 people died in a shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue.

Anyone with information on the Irvine synagogue vandalism is urged to call the Irvine Police Department at 949-724-7200.
