Home of parents of NY State assistant attorney general attacked with anti-Semitic graffiti

(JTA) — The parents of New York State’s Assistant Attorney General Jenny Michael were attacked with anti-Semitic vandalism.

Michael’s father, former New York City Budget Director Philip Michael, discovered the vandalism Sunday morning on the door to the family’s home in a Riverdale neighborhood of the Bronx.

The word “Jew” was spray painted in large white letters on the black front door while the family was sleeping.

A New York Police Department spokesperson told the New York Post that the incident is being investigated as a hate crime.

Despite the fact that several Jewish families live in the neighborhood, Michael’s house was the only one vandalized, Jenny Michael told the Post.
