A kosher barbecue festival at the Anshe Emet synagogue was disrupted this afternoon by a man who yelled “kill the Jews” while sporting a swastika and a black ski mask, according to off-duty police officers on the scene.
The officers were working as private security for the event near Broadway and Grace.
Around 12:20PM, a white man—about 5’11” tall and 150 pounds—waved a white flag and yelled threats at festival-goers, witnesses say He wore a black hoodie with a swastika on the back as well as a full ski mask. He was last seen heading southbound on Pine Grove toward Addison.
The same synagogue was plastered with anti-semitic graffiti in 2012.
