A Brooklyn synagogue was vandalized during the Rosh Hashanah holiday this week and a woman was assaulted during the Jewish Holiday; with police officers seeking the public’s help to find the group behind the incident.
“Two separate crimes, both on Rosh Hashana, targeted Jewish people in Brooklyn, according to police. In the first incident, authorities are searching for the young vandals who damaged a synagogue in the middle of the afternoon,” reports ABC New York. “The NYPD says video footage shows two people throwing a milk crate and a metal mailbox at a temple in Williamsburg. They were with at least three other people outside the Throop Avenue synagogue.”
“I am disgusted and enraged by yet another anti-Semitic act of vandalism, the desecration of a synagogue in Williamsburg over Rosh Hashanah, one of the holiest days in the Jewish calendar. It is simply unconscionable,” said Governor Andrew Cuomo.
“I am directing the New York State Police Hate Crimes Task Force to offer assistance to the NYPD as they investigate this disturbing act. This incident unfortunately underscores the need for State Police to increase their patrols around houses of worship during the Jewish high holidays this year,” he added.
