Ultra-Orthodox Jews in Brooklyn

Anti-Semitic Graffiti Left in Predominantly Jewish Brooklyn Building

The lobby of an apartment building in a Hasidic Jewish neighborhood of Brooklyn was vandalized with anti-Semitic graffiti.

A resident of a six-story building in Borough Park reported the graffiti, which said “F— Jews,” to the New York Police Department’s 66th Precinct on Sunday, JPUpdates reported. The precinct is investigating with the department’s Hate Crime Task Force Unit.

JP Updates said the majority of the residents of the 60-apartment building are Orthodox Jews.
