A Sukkah constructed by a Chabad center on Manhattan’s Upper East Side was found vandalized on Sunday, Hoshana Rabba.

The NYPD was on scene investigating the sukkah at Carl Schurz Park, defaced with the words “FREE GAZA” written in black spray-paint.

The NYPD’s Hate Crime Task Force is investigating the graffiti as a possible bias incident, officials said.

It’s believed the vandalism went down sometime between midnight and 8 a.m. Sunday, when it was reported to police.

NYC Mayor Bill DeBlasio tweeted: “Defacing a sukkah is unacceptable and an attack on our city’s values. If you have any information on this act of vandalism, please contact the NYPD.”
