On Sept. 8, erev Rosh HaShanah, vandals spraypainted a swastika on a billboard featuring the Sacramento Kings’ Omri Caspi, the first Israeli to play in the NBA.
The Anti-Defamation League has announced that it is offering a reward for information.
“The defacement of Omri Casspi’s likeness with a swastika – an ugly symbol of hate – is disturbing and an affront to the Jewish community and the Sacramento community at large, which has welcomed Israeli-born Casspi with open arms,” said Dan Sandman, director of ADL’s Central Pacific Region, which includes Sacramento, in a statement.
Anyone with information should contact the Sacramento Citizen’s Crime Alert Program at (916) 443-4357 or to text 274637.
