Hundreds help remove anti-Semitic graffiti from Denver synagogue

Posted: Friday, March 12, 2004

DENVER (AP) About 300 people of different faiths turned out to clean a synagogue vandalized with swastikas and Nazi symbols on the eve of the Jewish holiday Purim.

So many people showed up Sunday at BMH-BJ Congregation last Sunday that people had to stand in line for a turn with a brush and a can of paint thinner.

''This is a place for everyone,'' said Doug Mix, who is not a member of the congregation. ''That is why everyone is here. There are Christians, Jews, Muslims and people who are not religious. We all came out here because America is still America, and we don't tolerate this.''

A custodian for the synagogue discovered about 10 markings when he arrived last Saturday morning.
