As Jews around the world gathered in synagogues last Friday night to mark the start of Yom Kippur — the Day of Atonement — someone was apparently busy fashioning a massive swastika into several acres of a cornfield in Washington Township, N.J.
The swastika was spotted by a New Jersey State Police helicopter during a routine maintenance mission.
Local residents told the Star Ledger newspaper of Newark, N.J., that they were unaware of the reviled symbol of hate.
