A Brooklyn synagogue with Holocaust survivors among its congregation was the victim of anti-Semitic graffiti vandals who spray-painted “Hitler” on its façade, authorities said Wednesday.
Vernikov said she had received a text message from Rabbi Asher Altshul, who saw the vandalism when he arrived at the synagogue around 6:30 a.m.
“This is not something we’re [just] seeing in the media. This is something happening in our backyard,” Vernikov, who lives three blocks from the house of worship, said in a video posted on Twitter.
“There are Holocaust survivors who attend this shul,” she added. “And after the atrocities they’ve seen during World War II, they now have to come to a synagogue in the United States of America in 2022 and see a Hitler sign on the wall.”
