Anti-Semitic graffiti were found at two homes during the Rosh Hashanah weekend in Mamaroneck, N.Y., a suburb north of New York City.

The vandalism occurred against the backdrop of a series of anti-Semitic incidents earlier this year in Mamaroneck and other Westchester County communities.

Swastikas and the phrase “Kill the Jews” were found at one house Friday, it was reported. Additional vandalism, about which police would not elaborate, was discovered Saturday at another house.

Police increased patrols in the area. Police said no arrests had been made and it was not clear whether the two incidents were related.

No arrests were made in the string of vandalism in the area earlier in the year.

In March, 2,000 area residents of varying faiths gathered to declare their solidarity in combating hate.
