Cemetery in Warwick vandalized

Swastikas and other anti-Semitic graffiti were spray-painted on the entrance of Temple Beth Shalom’s cemetery in Warwick on October 8. The crime was discovered the next morning, days before the start of Yom Kippur.

Representatives from the Jewish Federation & Foundation of Rockland County reached out to the Jewish Federation of Greater Orange County, offering assistance and support.

Steve Gold, chair of Rockland Federation’s Community Relations Council, attended a solidarity ceremony with more than 500 people at the entrance to the cemetery.

There is a $10,000 reward for information leading to a conviction. To report a tip, call the Warwick Police Department at (845) 986-5000.
