Default Swastika: Police investigate swastika, other vandalism at Jewish cemetery in Cleveland

Police investigate swastika, other vandalism at Jewish cemetery in Cleveland

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Cleveland police are investigating vandalism at a Jewish Cemetery on the city’s East Side.
Lansing Avenue Jewish Cemetery manager Brett Cochran said that he discovered the graffiti Monday at the cemetery in the 3900 block of 57th Street in the Broadway-Slavic Village neighborhood. He reported it to Cleveland police Tuesday.
The vandals painted a backward swastika on a utility pole, a star of David inside and the word “Jewish” on a larger planter, according to a police report.
Jewish Federation of Cleveland in Beachwood chairman J. David Heller posted a statement regarding the incident on the Federations website decrying the vandalism.
“This attempt to desecrate a final resting place that has served our community since 1890 is unforgivable and indefensible,” he said. “Federation and its security provider – JFC Security, LLC – are working closely with local law enforcement to bring all responsible parties to justice. Hate has no home in Cleveland, and we will continue to work tirelessly to keep all Jewish Clevelanders safe.”
The Cleveland Police Intelligence Unit is investigating.
The vandalism marks the most recent incident of antisemitism targeting the Cleveland-area Jewish community.
In 2017, vandals carved a swastika into the door frame of a Lorain synagogue. Two years later, Police investigated after someone posted a poster denying the Holocaust on a sign outside the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage in Beachwood.
This year, police made arrests after someone spray-painted swastikas and other graffiti on Jewish businesses in University Heights.
