On the morning of Monday, November 14, around 6:30 a.m., Montgomery County Police learned of antisemitic graffiti near the Bethesda Trolley Trail in Bethesda, Maryland. 

The graffiti, painted in red and visible also for its scale, covered multiple locations near the Bethesda Trolley Trail, and consisted of antisemitic phrases and three stick figures hanging from gallows. Montgomery County Police removed the graffiti as soon as they were alerted to its presence.

County Executive Marc Elrich released a statement in conjunction with the Montgomery County Police showing support and concern for the Jewish residents of Maryland. So far, no information as to who might have committed the crime is known. However, residents close by have been advised to check any footage they might have from their security cameras.

As recently as August, the same community had another encounter with hateful images and speech targeting Jews in the form of graffiti.
