Right after church services ended Sunday morning, Terry Smith raced down to North Hollywood from Westlake Village, traded his Sunday finery for a T-shirt and jeans, and put aside his Bible for a paintbrush--to help clean up a Jewish high school hit by anti-Semitic graffiti. "I just paid somebody to paint my house last week," the 42-year-old engineer said as he swabbed off-white paint onto storage cabinets. "This is a different motivation."

About 40 young people gathered around a picnic table Saturday in Hart Park, half of them self-proclaimed skinheads there to support white supremacist Tom Metzger, and the other half to confront the Metzger supporters.

Attempts to discuss race issues led to a swap of insults riddled with barbs about hairdos, appearance and IQs.

Just as he was shocked to find a burned cross on his front lawn last week, Michael Coffey was surprised Sunday to find about 50 people standing there saying he is not alone in his fight against hate crimes. "If haters act to isolate a neighbor with hate, citizens are going to insulate that neighbor with love," said Frank Eiklor, who organized the rally. He is the president of Shalom International, an anti-bias organization in Costa Mesa.

Anti-Semitism, Christian activist Thomas (Ed) Steele says, isn't so much a Jewish problem as it is a Christian one. Steele, an ordained Baptist minister who gave up the pulpit to run an advertising agency in Orange, learned how true that was when he found his own offices defaced with swastikas Saturday morning.

More than 100 evangelical ministers in Los Angeles and Orange counties announced Thursday the formation of a task force against anti-Semitism. "Unchallenged anti-Semitism is really a disgrace to the Christian Church and flies in the face of our claiming to be a moral force," said the Rev. Frank Eiklor, a religious broadcaster in Orange County who spearheaded a similar effort in the Boston area several years ago.
