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.

  1. I grew up on the LES. My cousins went to school there. It’s horrible no matter where it happens, but hurts even more when it hits home. It’s very frightening how antisemitism is rising and rising all over!!!
    @ah yid- There is still a nice size Jewish community there. It’s certainly not what it used to be years ago. But it’s still there.
