(JTA) — A swastika was painted on the wall of a Spokane synagogue during Yom Kippur.

The swastika was painted on the concrete wall of Temple Beth Shalom’s enclosed courtyard on Saturday while services took place inside the building, according to local reports.

Spokane Police are investigating the incident; they are reviewing the synagogue’s security camera footage, according to reports. The swastika will be removed “immediately,” the synagogue’s rabbi, Tamar Malino said in a statement.
