Swastikas were among the anti-Semitic vandalism scrawled in a Brooklyn spree. Vandals in the New York City borough hit two synagogues, three private homes and two cars in Brooklyn Heights. The graffiti were found Monday night, two nights before the start of the Sukkot holiday. Police had not identified any suspects. A police task force is investigating the vandalism as a possible hate crime, the New York Sun reported.
