This morning, the New York Post notes a wave of recent anti-Semitic attacks in Brooklyn, New York, following an incident on Tuesday in which car windows in an Orthodox Jewish neighborhood were shot out with a BB gun and a synagogue was defaced with graffiti that read “F–ck Jews”.

Last week, a group of teenagers assaulted a man in Brooklyn as he walked home from temple, screaming “dirty Jews” and “dirty Kike”.

According to the Post’s report, prayer shawls worn by members of Brooklyn’s Orthodox Jewish community were stolen last week as well, from 5 separate synagogues.

“A thief or thieves also swiped seven silver ataras — decorative neckbands worth up to $600 each that are part of Orthodox prayer shawls — from five synagogues in Midwood last week,” The Post writes.
