Police investigating alleged anti-Semitic graffiti in Tottenham

Haringey police are investigating alleged anti-Semitic graffiti reported in Tottenham, according to Shomrim.

Orthodox neighbourhood watch group, Shomrim, posted on Twitter on Tuesday 7 July, that the graffiti had been daubed in South Tottenham.

The graffiti was dabued on the Paignton Road junction with Vartry Road, N15, and was scrawled in Polish.

It also included a Star of David – with the letters “RTS” – an apparent reference to RTS Widzew Łódź SA, a football club  – according to Campaign Against Antisemitism (CAA).

Alongside the Star of David was daubed the words “Zydzew Zdychaj”.  “Zydzew” is a combination of the name of the club with the Polish word for “Jew” and “Zdychaj” means “dies”, according to CAA.

The tweet posted by Shomrim outlined that Haringey police were investigating.

The police have been asked for comment. 


Help perform the greatest mitzvah: save a life

While life in Israel has returned to normal and hopes are high that Britain is set for a summer without restrictions thanks to vaccines, for billions around the world there is no such imminent light at the end of the tunnel. In the majority of countries around the globe, particularly the poorest, the vaccine rollout has barely kicked off.

That's why Jewish News, the leading source of news and opinion for the entire UK community, is throwing its full weight behind UNICEF’s VaccinAid campaign by using this platform usually reserved for encouraging donations towards our own journalism to instead urge our readers around the globe to perform the greatest mitzvah: saving a life.

We have never before done this for any charity fundraiser but it's hard to recall a campaign that affects so many people, and indeed an entire planet aching for a return to normality. Just like the Chief Rabbi and Rachel Riley, we hope to boost the mission to deliver two billion vaccines, 165 million treatments and 900 million test kits around the world by the end of this year.

Please donate as much as you can, in the spirit of the Talmudic sages: “to save one life is to save the world entire”
