The NYPD was investigating after some nasty and explicit graffiti was scrawled on the famed Mesiva Tiferes Yerushalayim building located at 147 East Broadway on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.
Sources tell YWN that the graffiti was done on Shabbos – while everyone was inside the Bais Medrash – including the Posek Hador, Hagaon HaRav Dovid Feinstein.
Police were looking at security camera footage in their investigation.
Taking the matter seriously, later Sunday, Mayor Deblasio tweeted that the NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating the graffiti.
