Police Investigating Anti-Semitic Flyers Distributed in Beverly Hills Neighborhood on First Night of Hanukkah

Police in Beverly Hills, California, have launched an investigation after residents received anti-Jewish hate speech flyers ahead of the first night of Hanukkah, the department said Sunday.

The flyers were likely distributed overnight in what police are calling a “hate incident,” according to a statement from the Beverly Hills Police Department. Police said they received a call from a resident reporting a flyer in their front yard shorty after 6 a.m. on Sunday. Hanukkah began Sunday evening.

The flyer contains “propaganda style hate speech related to the COVID pandemic and the Jewish people,” the department said in a statement.

A portion of the flyer received by residents said, “Every single aspect of the COVID agenda is Jewish,” according to CNN affiliate KABC.

“Police surveyed the area and discovered that the flyers, enclosed in plastic bags containing rice (for weight), were distributed to homes in several blocks in the northeast area of the City,” the police statement said.
