A temple in an upscale neighborhood of Long Beach, Calif., was vandalized.

Two-foot tall swastikas and the words "Nazi" were painted in red spray-paint on the front of the Temple Israel building on Monday night. Temple Israel is the oldest Reform synagogue between Los Angeles and San Diego, the Long Beach Post reported.

Long Beach Police Department spokeswoman Nancy Pratt told the newspaper that the incident was being investigated as a hate crime.

The temple had recently completed a yearlong $4.6 million renovation, according to the newspaper.
