France: Another antisemitic act against the Garges-lès-Gonesse synagogue


The BNVCA has condemned a new anti-Semitic act perpetrated once again against the Jewish community of Garges-lès-Gonesse, Val d'Oise. The head of the synagogue informed BNVCA that anti-Jewish tags were discovered on 16 July 2017 on the facade of this place of worship situated at 14 Rue JB Corot.

The perpetrators painted "Dirty Jews" followed by a star with 6 branches, Maguen David, as if the authors wanted to hang a star at this place of worship on the day of the commemoration of the Rafle of the Vel d'Hiv of 16 July 1942.

The president, exasperated by an incalculable number of attacks against the people and the property of his community since the appearance of the 'new anti-Semitism', has informed BNVCA of his wish to meet urgently with the Prefect of the department. He also hopes that the relevant departments will prune the trees surrounding the synagogue which obstruct the visibility of the video surveillance cameras that could have enabled the identification of the authors of the graffiti.
