Lisa Marie Burns, a North Carolina citizen, was arrested by the local police and has admitted to vandalizing the Cary Sha'arei Shalom Synagogue on Friday.
Burns, 57 years old, threw bricks at the Sha'arei Shalom synagogue in Cary, North Carolina, as well as painted "FU" on the door and vandalized vehicles.
Burns was arrested by the police on Saturday, as she confessed to committing the crimes, and was bailed out.
“We’re not going to respond by being afraid. We’re not going to respond with despair. We’re not even going to respond with bitterness,” Messianic Rabbi Seth Klayman, leader of the congregation, said. “The ultimate goal would be to see a transformed heart.”
The Sha'arei Shalom congregation has been subjected to antisemitic actions in the past, as a man delivered antisemitic threats through the intercom, merely a few hours after a Saturday memorial for the Pittsburgh massacre
"The rhetoric was very typical, antisemitic hate speech: Get out of the government, get out of Cary, get out of our country," Klayman said.
