    The man left and returned a short time later, carrying a bag or pillowcase that contained human feces, said Hallandale Beach Police Capt. RaShana Dabney-Donovan.
    He dumped the bag in front of the synagogue and yelled, “Jews should die," according to a police report.
    He also spat at a menorah near a sidewalk, according to the police.

    Hallandale Beach Commissioner Anabelle Lima-Taub said it’s no accident these incidents happened days after an 11-day conflict between Israel and Hamas that has since led to a ceasefire.
    “It seems that every time there is an uprising, or a situation globally or nationally, easily identifiable members of our religious community, specifically the Orthodox Jewish community, are a target,” she said.
    Earlier this month, a Hallandale Beach man reported having rocks thrown at him as he walked to the Chabad of South Broward.
    “It’s very important for us to combat these types of incidents,” said Dabney-Donovan.
