A Holocaust memorial in New Jersey and the adjacent synagogue were vandalized with antisemitic graffiti.

Among the graffiti painted in red on the memorial on Route 9 in Lakewood, New Jersey, were swastikas and the number 666, which is associated with Satan and the Beast of Revelation in the New Testament. Similar graffiti was painted on the walls of Congregation Sons of Israel, located next to the memorial, as well as on a white pickup truck parked outside the synagogue, according to the Asbury Park Press.
