Several residents of Beverly Hills woke up on the first day in Hanukkah to find anti-Semitic flyers in their patios, said police.

Beverly Hills police received a call around 6 p.m.

Officers and public works personnel searched the area and found that several other homes spanning several blocks in the northeast area of ​​Beverly Hills had also been attacked.

Police said the leaflets were printed on a single sheet of paper enclosed in plastic bags of rice for weight. Written on flyers were “propaganda-like hate speech related to the COVID pandemic and the Jewish people,” police said.

Beverly Hills City Councilman John A. Mirisch wrote one Photo of the alleged flyer on his Twitter account.

“Every single aspect of the COVID agenda is Jewish,” the flyer states. Fifteen names of prominent figures of Jewish descent working in finance and health were listed below. It suggested that Jews have a vested interest in the COVID-19 pandemic through their supposed control over finances and media.

“We are literally shabbos goy performing the will of the Jews, consciously or unconsciously,” the flyer said.

“Shabbos goy” is a term used to refer to non-Jews employed by Orthodox Jews to perform certain services that are forbidden on the Sabbath.

Beverly Hills Police have not confirmed that the flyer that Mirisch submitted is the same flyer that was delivered to several homes Sunday.

Because the planes were delivered on the first day in Hanukkah, the police department said it will arrange for additional patrols throughout the city to ensure a safe holiday season.

The news of the planes has troubled the Jewish community in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles.

“As the Jewish community begins to celebrate Hanukkah, the festival of lights, it is deeply troubling that we continue to express genuine hatred and ignorance,” Jay Sanderson, president and CEO of the Jewish Federation of Los Angeles, told Fox News in an announcement. “We must all resolutely stand up against this anti-Semitism.”

Rabbi Yosef Cunin, director of Chabad in California, said the planes were a “setback” to what the Jewish community has come to expect from the United States, but has promised to continue.

“We will move forward and we will support local law enforcement and everyone else who can come forward to protect all minorities of all backgrounds, of all races and colors and faiths.”

Beverly Hills Jewish Community Synagogue planned to light a candle later Sunday to celebrate the beginning of Hanukkah.

“The idea of ​​the candle pushes negativity away,” Cunin said. “And the only way you can get rid of negativity is to bring more positivity into the world.”
