Police probing N.Y. signs with ‘Kill Jews’


NEW YORK (JTA) — Police are investigating a series of incidents involving the spread of anti-Semitic material in Brooklyn.

On Wednesday morning, residents of the Bay Ridge neighborhood found hundreds of 2-inch signs with the words “Kill Jews” across part of a street, the New York Daily News reported.

Authorities said identical signs had been found littering other parts of the New York borough on at least two other occasions this month.

The New York Police Department’s Hate Crimes unit reportedly has launched an investigation.

“This isn’t a one-time situation,” Herb Karasik, president of the Bay Ridge Jewish Center, told the Daily News. “This has been an ongoing problem.”
