A string of vandalism targeting religious groups continued this week, as banners hanging at synagogues and churches in Brooklyn Heights were torn down by some not-so-merry pranksters.
The banners, which read, “We are all children of one God,” were put up after a September incident in which 22 swastikas were scrawled in several Brooklyn Heights locations, including on the walls of two Remsen Street synagogues.
Now, the symbolic gesture of unity by the Heights religious community is under assault.
Cops have not caught the original anti-Semitic vandals, despite a $10,000 reward offered by the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York. Because the investigation is ongoing, cops at the 84th Precinct declined to comment on the latest incident.
Churches that were victimized included Zion German Evangelical Lutheran Church, Our Lady of Lebanon Maronite Cathedral, and St. Ann and the Holy Trinity.
It is unclear if the new crime is connected to the swastika incident, or an unconnected random act of unkindness.
