Pig Poster Pasted On Synagogue Door

Updated: Apr 21, 2019

The Reform congregation in Winnipeg was the victim of an antisemtic prank on Friday afternoon April 12th.

The Temple Shalom on Grant Avenue discovered a photo of a pig, adorned with a swastika, devil's horns, and the word "Satan" above the snout stuck onto the back door of the shul.

The pig was also adorned with a string of pearls and a pink dress, leading to sources speculating this was somehow also a diatribe about gays.

Ran Ukashi, National Director of the B'nai Brith League for Human Rights in Canada, stated:

"We spoke with someone from Temple Shalom earlier today and this was reported to the police. A file number has been established and the police are actively investigating it."

Ukashi said there are about 30 reports of similar incidents reported annually in Canada.

Anyone with further information can contact Ukashi at (204) 477-7512 .
