Addressing the recent vandalism on
German Hill Road

Sometime around the July 4th weekend, 13 monuments were vandalized with swastikas in a JCA cemetery on German Hill Road (Ohr Knesseth Israel Anshe Sfard). Immediately upon learning of this, JCA acted to have monuments immediately cleaned and the graffiti removed. The police have been notified.

“Fortunately, we have the infrastructure within the Jewish Cemetery Association of Greater Baltimore, to respond quickly and provide dignity for the memory of our loved ones."

On July 9th a Interfaith Demonstration of Unity was held in conjunction with the Baltimore Jewish Council and Jewish Cemetery Association at the cemetery that was vandalized.  Steve Venick, the President of the Jewish Cemetery Association speaks around the 10 minute mark.
