NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne)  --  The Jewish Federation of Nashville and Middle Tennessee says the Nashville Holocaust Memorial at the Gordon Jewish Community Center was vandalized over the weekend.

The Federation says in a Facebook post that someone placed anti-Semitic and white supremacy messages on the memorial Saturday night.

The group says it’s alerted the mid-state’s Jewish residents to the incident using its in-house security network.

Nashville’s Jewish community has suffered a number of attacks over the years. Shots were fired at the West End Synagogue in 2015. The Jewish Community Center was bombed in 1958.
