In addition, the phrase “Communism is Judaism,” was spray-painted onto the wall of an auto center.
Two antisemitic acts occurred in south Florida in the days leading up to Passover, according to local news outlet 7News Miami.
In one incident, a Holocaust survivor’s car was vandalized with swastikas drawn in the dust of the windshield in Hallandale Beach.
Security footage was obtained by Hallandale Beach Police who are reportedly investigating the incident.
Pictures of the vehicle were shared by nonprofit foundation StopAntisemitism.org on their Twitter account.

“It’s a terrible occurrence anytime, but that’s especially so on the eve of a Jewish holiday,” said Jewish community member and CEO of the South Florida public relations firm Red Banyan Evan Nierman.
Shortly thereafter in Miami, the phrase “Communism is Judaism,” was spray-painted onto the wall of an auto-center.
Passers-by expressed upset at the occurrence, which area police are also reportedly investigating.
Nierman commented that “Unfortunately, what we saw in South Florida over the last day or two has been a continuation of something that Jewish people have had to endure for literally thousands of years.”
His firm represents many Jewish clients, according to 7News Miami.
