A woman in Bushey has posted photographs on Facebook showing slices of bacon hanging over her doorbell next to her Mezuzah, a decorative case containing a Jewish prayer which is traditionally fixed to the doorpost of a Jewish home. She also posted photographs showing the vandalised front garden of the home she shares with her mother.
She wrote on Facebook that the incident has left her scared to leave the house as she suspects neighbours committed the crime as part of an ongoing series of hate crimes which have allegedly included them calling her mother a “Jewish c***”.
Our Crime Unit has requested further information from the victim, who says that she has endured antisemitism throughout her life, including a teacher calling her a “Nazi” and a man burning her with a cigarette because he did not want Jews to share the same pathway as him.
