Rego Park Jewish Center Vandalized With Hate Symbols

(Queens Shmira)

The Rego Park Jewish Center in Queens, was vandalized with swastika graffiti on Thursday.

Queens Shmira was the scene to clean up the hateful messages. In a tweet, Shmira thanked the 112th Precinct for their “quick response investigating this heinous act of hate.”

In a statement, Governor Andrew Cuomo said “I am disgusted by the swastika and other anti-Semitic graffiti that were found outside of the Rego Park Jewish Center in Queens – a place where many members of the Jewish community come to feel safe and at home. This hateful act is the work of a coward who only seeks to instill fear in our communities, and it will not be tolerated.”
