Amidst a spate of antisemitic events in New York City over the past few days, another incident came to the forefront, wherein this past Shabbos, vandals sprayed antisemitic graffiti across the front window of a Forest Hills dental office.
The recently reported hate crime that is now being investigated by the NYPD Hate Crimes Unit saw a vicious profanity in reference to Jews, sprawled across the window of the laboratory.
The graffiti was first seen by a Rabbi, who took to reporting the crime immediately. After the incident, Queens Councilwoman Lynn Schulman tweeted a photo of the graffiti saying, “There is no place for this disgusting antisemitic vandalism anywhere.”
Mayor Eric Adams tweeted about the incident, saying: “This would be disgusting anytime but it’s especially outrageous as we come to the end of Shabbos. We won’t let this vicious hatred go unanswered in our city.”
Soon afterward, Queens Borough President Donovan Richards also tweeted, “There are no words to accurately describe how hideous and vile this is. Hate cannot be accepted anywhere, but especially not in the World’s Borough. If you spew antisemitism or hate in our borough, you will be caught. You will be prosecuted. You will never win.”
