PROSPECT HEIGHTS, Brooklyn (WABC) –
Annoying hate messages were found Thursday night in a synagogue in Brooklyn, the latest in a disturbing series of anti-Semitic incidents across the country.
Graffiti in the Union Temple on Eastern Parkway in Prospect Heights read "Kill All Jewish" and "Hitler" along with another terribly offensive language.
The police say some of them were written in a stairwell with black markings, and the vandalism forced the cancellation to a political event because people felt threatened.
A "Get the Vote" event hosted by Broad City actress Liana Glazer was canceled as a result.
Mayor Bill de Blasio said graffiti is the worst hatred and hatred The NYPD will find the perpetrators and bring them to justice.
The NYPD says that half of all hate crimes in the city are directed against Jewish people and the number of incidents this year has increased.
Earlier this week, Eyewitness News Repo on swastikas and the N-word of some brownstones in Garden Place has been reported.
There have been no arrests in this most recent case.
Jewish leaders demand that people of all faiths come along as Shabbat worship services to help victims in Pittsburgh.
It was the worst attack on Jewish people in American history.
