The windows of a Maryland synagogue and two nearby Jewish-owned businesses were shot out this week.

The vandalism was discovered Monday morning, hours before the start of Passover.

Police have not yet determined if the attack on the Beth Sholom Congregation in Potomac, Md. is a hate crime. The windows were shot out by a BB gun, according to reports.

The windows of a jewelry store and a ladies apparel store were also shot out.
