Congregants at Temple Beth El who had gathered to celebrate the last night of Hanukkah were met by a group of neo-Nazi demonstrators who waved red-and-black swastika flags outside the Reform synagogue in Riverside, Calif., on Friday evening.

Rabbi Suzanne Singer said she suspects that the demonstration -- the third such protest in recent months at the temple -- was connected to a counter protest held by members of the synagogue in September, when neo-Nazis protested at a day laborer site.
