Cleveland, OH (OH) -

B’nai Jeshurun Congregation is raising funds to help remove the paint from a woman’s home that was vandalized with swastikas on the first night of Hanukkah.

The woman said the vandalism occurred while she was napping inside—sometime between 6:20-7 p.m. Sunday evening.

“I heard the dogs barking. I came out, they said your house has been vandalized,” she said.

She continued, “Look at it. I don’t understand. I think it’s a malicious hate crime.”

The woman is hoping one of her neighbors witnessed the incident, so she can get some answers to questions that will surely haunt her for a long time to come.

One of the neighbors caught a potential suspect on a security camera, but the footage doesn’t reveal the man’s face.
