A rabbi reportedly discovered anti-Semitic posters on the door of a Grand Rapids, Mich., synagogue over the weekend, which included photos of Adolf Hitler and bigoted statements.

Temple Emanuel Rabbi Michael Schadick arrived at the synagogue Sunday morning to find the posters. One had a picture of Hitler with the words "Did you forget about me?" The other said "A crusade against Semite led subhumans,” CNN reported.


The Jerusalem Post shared photos of the posters, which included the name of the Vorherrschaft Division at the bottom, an extremist neo-Nazi group.

Law enforcement officers and the major crimes detective unit in Grand Rapids are still investigating the incident, CNN reported. No arrests have been made yet, and there are no definitive leads, Sgt. John Wittkowski with the Grand Rapids Police Department confirmed.

Wittkowski told CNN that local law enforcement believes the incident happened between 8 p.m. on Saturday and 8 a.m. on Sunday. The Jewish holiday of Sukkot began Sunday evening.
