The billboards are owned by Lamar Advertising, Outfront Media and Fairway Outdoor Advertising. The companies said they wanted to share a message of support for the Congregation Shaarey Tefilla, which was tagged with Nazi flags and iron crosses on Saturday. 

The FBI is working with the Carmel Police Department to find the vandals and the Anti-Defamation League has offered a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction of those responsible for the hateful vandalism.
