Anti-Defamation League concerned anti-Semitic vandalism in New Jersey

The Anti-Defamation League says that the organization is concerned over recent acts of anti-Semitic vandalism in New Jersey.



Swastikas and anti-Semitic graffiti were found painted on playgrounds and parks in Lakewood and Howell Township within the past week.



"The appearance of swastikas and anti-Semitic messages on public property are searing and serve as another sobering reminder that New Jersey is not immune to anti-Jewish sentiment," says ADL New Jersey Regional Director Joshua Cohen.



Anti-Semitic incidents saw a 28 percent increase in New Jersey for 2015, according to statistics tracked by the ADL.
