October 7, 2011 |  9:40 am

A large swastika and the word "Jew" spray-painted on a Hemet home reportedly owned by a Messianic Jewish pastor are being investigated as a hate crime, officials said.

The homeowner on the 27000 block of Windsor Court told police the vandalism to his garage door occurred sometime Wednesday night or Thursday morning, according to a sheriff’s report.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise reported the home belongs to a Messianic Jewish pastor, who runs a chapel in San Jacinto. Messianic Judaism is a blend of evangelical Christianity and Judaism.

The pastor could not be reached for comment.
