Anti-Semitic posters placed near Massachusetts synagogue

MARBLEHEAD, Mass. (AP) — Two anti-Semitic posters that referred to the Holocaust as "fake news" have been found outside a Massachusetts synagogue.

Police are investigating the posters found near the entrance to Temple Emanu-El in Marblehead on Monday morning. Rabbi David Meyer tells The Daily Item of Lynn that one flier was placed on the temple's welcome sign adjacent to its front steps.

Meyer says while the posters are "distressing" he has been heartened by the response of the town north of Boston's interfaith community, as well as law enforcement.

The fliers reference local groups that support a neo-Nazi website.

Meyer says surveillance video has been turned over to police, who are seeing the public's help.

Police Chief Robert Picariello says no suspect or suspects have been identified.
