In January five swastikas were found drawn outside the Masonic Lodge and Aldrich Museum. Swastikas and antisemitic graffiti also have been a recurring problem at Ridgefield High School.

Ridgefield is a bedroom community near the city of Danbury and about an hour from New York City.

The Anti-Defamation League has offered a $2,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual or individuals responsible for incidents of swastika graffiti around Ridgefield.

In December, town officials held a forum on hate and bias in December with officials from the Anti-Defamation League.
