According to reports, a swastika was also drawn on the letter inside the envelope, which was received a number of days after it was sent.
The letter was sent on August 14 but was only discovered Tuesday when community heads returned from their summer vacation.
The head of a national body monitoring anti semitism in France, Sammy
Ghozlan, urged other synagogues to put extra security in place ahead of
the upcoming September holidays.
Ghozlan said that the letter was similar to one that was received at a synagogue in another northern suburb of Paris, Stains.
The synagogue is located Drancy where an infamous transit camp for Jews
was set up during World War ll. About 65,000 Jews were deported from
there to extermination camps.
