The Chabad Jewish Center of Idaho in Boise was vandalized with anti-Semitic graffiti.

A spray-painted message discovered on the building on June 11 read “Zionism = Racism.”

Boise Police Lt. Kent Lipple told the Idaho Statesman that the vandalism would be considered a hate crime since its message was specific to a particular religion.

The Boise community has supported the Chabad center with phone calls, e-mails and visits, Chabad emissary Rabbi Mendel Lifshitz told the Idaho Statesman. Volunteers have offered to repaint the building’s wall.
