The following is a letter sent from the camp to the parents of the campers:

Dear Parents,

This morning in Camp Agudah Midwest, it was discovered that swastikas were painted on exterior areas of camp last night. The safety of our campers is our number one priority, and we want to let you know that your children are B”H safe.

Upon discovering the graffiti, camp management was immediately in touch with the police. Officers were dispatched to camp to investigate and met with our camp leadership. The graffiti was cleaned and there are currently no markings in camp.

Camp Agudah Midwest is working with local law enforcement to identify the men who perpetrated the crime. They are reviewing video surveillance footage as well as other evidence they gathered.

In addition to working with law enforcement officials, camp will be adding additional security measures above and beyond our normal security protocols. We have also hired a security guard to patrol camp throughout the night.

As we come to the end of Tisha B’Av, we daven to Hashem that this will be our last Tisha B’Av in galus, and we will see Mashiach B’meheira B’yameinu.

  1. Doesn’t look like anything to serious. It most probably was a bunch of kids that think its funny to vandalize others property.

  2. REALLY NOW? AND I GUESS MOST KIDS USUALLY PUT ON SWASTIKAS WHEN THEY VANDALIZE.MAYBE ITS TIME FOR US JEWS TO WAKE UP AND SEE THE GROWING ANTI SEMITISM AROUND US .

  3. thats not the point, the point is that its a home for 100s of boys and girls and it was targeted with hate and discrimination…

  4. We must realize that the low life person who have done this low act just wanted us to be scar and talk about it just as we do. we must not give it publication nothing would happen.

  5. @teebee48 – Yes. It might be just a bunch of kids who thought it was funny, but it’s a serious and scary sign of our times. If we don’t take these things seriously, then we are in big trouble. Look what’s going on all over the world right now.
    Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it – chas v’shalom. Let us daven that this be the last Tisha B’av in galus. We should all be in Yerushalyim with Moshiach and the 3rd Bais HaMikdash very soon.

  6. Kindergarten kids get suspended for making a gun with their fingers. The world is no longer tolerant of this stuff. No more, kids will be kids.
    They need to be prosecuted as a hate crime to the full extent of the law. If nothing more than to teach, we don’t tolerate this.

  7. If it was a confederate flag painted on a camp for African American kids you could be sure CNN and half a dozen other outlets would have a team planted outside the camp covering this hate crime.

  8. I didn’t say the police shouldn’t investigate it and we shouldn’t take precautions,I just said that they don’t need to report in the media every stupid thing as we do exactly what’s the drawer wants. To make us scar

  9. My question was not answered here but I found out elsewhere.
