SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) - A Jewish congregation in Sarasota says someone drew anti-Semitic images on its property.

The Sarasota Herald-Tribune (http://bit.ly/2hX9VHT ) reports two small swastikas and a third attempt at one were drawn on the main building and a shed in the playground area at Temple Sinai in Sarasota.

Temple president Mark Richmond says the graffiti was removed by maintenance staff and reported to the police.
