Colorado Synagogue Vandalized on Hitler’s Birthday

JewishPress Logo

A Colorado Springs synagogue was vandalized with swastikas on the walls, signs, and door on Friday, on the birthday of Adolf Hitler.

Temple Beit Torah was marred by swastikas and the words “Happy 4:20”, an allusion to April 20, 1889, Hitler’s birthday.

Caretaker Stan Peters has already washed and painted applicable areas.

April 20 is also the day of the 1999 Columbine High School shooting. Columbine and Colorado Springs are just an hour and 20 minutes drive apart.
