Voting Rally Cancelled After ‘Kill All Jews’ Drawn Inside Brooklyn Synagogue

A political event at a historic Brooklyn synagogue was cancelled Thursday after “Kill all Jews” was found scrawled inside, the New York Post reported.

“Hitler,” “Jews better be ready” and “Die Jew rats, we are here!” were among the hateful messages scribbled in black marker at Union Temple in Prospect Heights, the New York Daily News reported.

The New York Police Department said the messages were found on the stairwell at around 8 p.m.

Ilana Glazer, star of Comedy Central’s “Broad City,” was to host a get-out-the-vote event, interviewing journalist Amy Goodman and New York state senate candidates Andrew Gounardes and Jim Gaughran, according to the Post. Glazer told the crowd at about 8:30 p.m. that the event was cancelled due to the graffiti.

The vandalism was discovered just days after a gunman killed 11 in a synagogue in Pittsburgh’s densely Jewish neighborhood of Squirrel Hill. The gunaman allegedly yelled “All Jews must die.”
