PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 15, 2017 — State Sen. John Sabatina issued a statement on an act of vandalism caught on video surveillance Sunday morning at Congregation Beth Solomon, located in the senator’s Northeast Philadelphia district.

“This more than vandalism, it’s a blatant anti-Semitic attack in our own community. I’m appalled and disgusted by this brazen act of hatred and I’m heartbroken that Congregation Beth Solomon has endured yet another attack on their synagogue. I urge folks to help the police identify the perpetrator and to join me in condemning this and any threat or act of hatred committed in our community.”
