Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center for Holocaust Studies (FSWC) condemns in the strongest possible terms the anti-Semitic graffiti spray painted on the Robbins Hebrew Academy adjacent to the Beth Tikvah synagogue in Toronto on Thursday, August 4.

"We are both saddened and angry to note that 66 years after the Holocaust, this hatred still exists," said Avi Benlolo, President and CEO of FSWC. "We hope and expect members of all faith communities to join with us in denouncing this cowardly and racist act."
