Giant Swastika Sprayed on Kingsbridge, Bronx Center of Israel Synagogue

The Center of Israel synagogue in Kingsbridge, Bronx.

A four square foot Nazi swastika was spray painted in black across the front wall of the Kingsbridge Center of Israel synagogue, in Bronx, New York, the New York Post reported on Wednesday.

The Post said the “disturbing discovery” was made by the synagogue’s president at 8:30 AM on Monday when he arrived at the building after locking up at 6 PM the night before.

As of Tuesday evening, police were still canvassing the area for surveillance video, but no arrests had been made. Further comment from the shul’s rabbi was not available immediately.

Separately, the Post also reported that the New York Police Department’s Hate Crime Task Force is investigating anti-Semitic graffiti scrawled on a Lower East Side apartment door.

Law-enforcement sources told the newspaper that the female victim, 50, lives in the Baruch Houses, on Columbia Street, and found the words “Jewish bitch” written in pencil on her door at around 11 AM on Saturday.

The woman has been targeted by a similar attack in the past, and police told the Post that they believe the hateful messages may be the result of a longstanding dispute with a neighbor, the newspaper said.

  • To the NY media and NYPD, now under orders of the sandinista to pretend Jew hate doesn’t exist, this is nothing more then a blotter report! This was one of 2 significant Anti-Jew attacks today – that we know of. The ADL will, of course, allege they were both just juvenile pranks and do not mount to the level of Antisemitism! the sandinista is with sharpton letting him know that if “an obama 35 years ago” is in any way arrested they will both scream ‘racial profiling.’

    FACT: Anti-Jew attacks in NYC have been skyrocketing since 2009, including the “knockout game” attacks that the NY Times, the ADL, the sandinista, and Holder all call “urban legend” (unless of course the victims are black at which point they become hate crimes).

    FACT: The Anti-Jew attacks will continue to skyrocket, with the eventuality that NYC will soon become the first judenrein city in the country

    FACT: Given the sandinista deblasio’s history in nicaragua, there will be a concerted series of political attacks on Jews, to be followed by physical attacks since under deblasio, his new NYPD commissioner, and his senior adviser sharpton, attacking Jews will be deemed “social justice.”

    How Jewish Television Pioneer Milton Berle Inspired Modern Comedy Stars

    JNS.org – Today’s comedy superstars, especially those whose careers are driven by television, may very well owe their success to pioneering Jewish entertainer Milton Berle. Born Mendel Berlinger in Manhattan in 1908, Berle became America’s first small-screen star. Aptly nicknamed “Mr. Television,” he influenced and helped promote the work of hundreds of younger comics. “Milton Berle was deceptively successful and very Jewish,” says Lawrence Epstein, author of The Haunted Smile: The Story of Jewish Comedians in America, published the year [...]

    JNS.org – Idan Ravin’s friends chipped in to buy him a humble but life-changing bar mitzvah gift—a basketball hoop his father attached to the roof of his garage. Little did his friends know that years later, he would be the personal trainer of National Basketball Association (NBA) stars Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant, Dwight Howard, and Stephen Curry. Ravin’s new book, “The Hoops Whisperer: On the Court and Inside the Head of Basketball’s Best Players,” details his rise from a Jewish upbringing [...]

    10 New Hollywood Movies That Aim to Show Support for Israel (SATIRE)

    Ten major film studios are currently in production on projects that promote a decidedly pro-Israeli narrative. In famously liberal Hollywood, such a development has left mouths agape and set tongues a wagging. Since the Jewish State began defending itself from the thousands of rockets that Hamas has hurled at it – as well as ongoing terror attacks and murders, the overwhelming number of Tinseltown’s producers, directors, actors, and studio moguls have remained indifferent to the plight of millions of Israeli [...]

    Israeli Judoka Yarden Gerbi (63kg), 25, of Netanya, on Thursday lost the final round at the Judo World Cup, and her world title to Clarisse Agbegnenou of France, at a match held in Russia. “I have mixed feelings,” Gerbi told Israeli Army radio. But, “I shouldn’t assume that I’d win the world Judo championship twice in a row,” she admitted. Gerbi won gold in Rio De Janeiro last year. “When I made my decision, I knew it was going to [...]

    Surviving the Holocaust by Hiding Their Faith (REVIEW)

    “Jews Out!” was just the name of a child’s game that three little girls played in World War II Europe. But all is not as it seems because the three girls were Jewish, but hiding their true identities. In award-winning author R. D. Rosen’s riveting non-fiction work, Such Good Girls, “Jews Out!” wasn’t a game; it was a struggle for survival. The girls, Sophie, Flora, and Carla, grew up at a time and a place that did not allow them [...]

    JNS.org – “He was part hippie, part yippie, part beatnik, and part New Age,” wrote Elli Wohlgelernter in a Jerusalem Post eulogy in 1994, following the Oct. 20 passing of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach. Twenty years later, more robust accounts of Carlebach’s life have come to the surface. Earlier this year, Natan Ophir published the book Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach: Life, Mission & Legacy. This past summer, Rabbi Shlomo Katz’s The Soul of Jerusalem hit the shelves. But even the authors will admit [...]

    Beatlemania Invades the Gaza Strip (SATIRE)

    As Hamas loses its grip on power in the Gaza Strip as a result of war, poverty and disillusionment, the Islamist terrorist group has developed an ingenious way to raise the morale of the 1.7 million Palestinian Arabs it was elected to serve. While currently focused on delivering a rocket into every Israeli home, Hamas has not left its own people behind. To gently wipe away the tears of children strategically placed inside kindergartens as human shields, the Hamas Interior Ministry [...]

    Removing Jesus’ Jewish Identity From Artwork

    In a strong statement that challenges the historic divide between Christianity and Judaism, Pope Francis recently proclaimed, “Inside every Christian is a Jew.” But if you look at Renaissance artworks that depict Jesus, you will not find any evidence of a Jew inside the Christianized Jesus — even though the Gospels in the New Testament tell us that Jesus was Jewish to the core. Getting that point across to the public is a daunting task, as I learned in interviews I [...]
