Swastikas deface Jewish newspapers in New York on Yom Kippur

Luke Tress is an editor and a reporter in New York for The Times of Israel.

Swastikas are found on newspaper boxes distributing Jewish publications in New York City.

The antisemitic graffiti turned up last night, at the end of Yom Kippur, in a Jewish area of Queens.

A photo posted by local politician Daniel Rosenthal shows swastikas on boxes for the Jewish newspapers The Queens Jewish Link, The Bukharian Jewish Link and The 5 Towns Jewish Times.

“We must be able to feel safe in our neighborhoods. We must do more. The continued rise of antisemitism is unsustainable and unacceptable,” Rosenthal says.
