Anti-Semitic flyers found at five East Bay synagogues

And Happy New Year to you, too.

Anti-Semitic fliers were found recently at 5 synagogues in the East Bay in the days leading up to Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year.

The fliers show Infowars owner Alex Jones with a Jewish star covering his mouth, and has  anti-Semitic depictions of Jews in the background.

The local police and the ADL have been informed, and security at local synagogues is being ramped up for the upcoming holidays.

A board member of San Leandro's  Temple Beth Sholom board member found the flyer, prompting the temple board to release a statement:

 "These hate groups stand for the very opposite of our values of love and inclusivity. We are fortunate to have a warm and close-knit community that will not be cowed by attempts to intimidate. We wish our entire community a sweet and happy new year."
