ae2A man yelling anti-Jewish slurs on the steps of a large Brooklyn Synagogue  was arrested by the NYPD on Thursday morning.

The incident happened at around 7:30AM, when members of Ahi Ezer Congregation heard loud banging on the locked doors, and someone yelling on the steps of the prominent synagogue located at 1885 Ocean Parkway at the corner of Avenue S. For a few minutes, the man, who is approximately 20-years-old and of Middle-Eastern descent, screamed anti-semitic slurs, and tried getting into the locked building.

The NYPD and Flatbush Shomrim (FSSP) were called, and responded quickly.

A police source told YWN that the man might possibly be emotionally disturbed, and that NYPD Detectives are reviewing security camera footage to make a determination if the case will be turned over to the NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force.

The man was taken into custody, and transported to Coney Island Hospital.

Ahi Ezer Congregation is one of the largest Sephardic Synagogues in Brooklyn, and located in the center of the Brooklyn Sephardic community.

Police and Shomrim remind everyone that informed, alert communities play a critical role in keeping our city and community.

If you see something, say something!

  1. hell be out in no time as the NYPD doesnt want to appear to be “profiling” and they are already saying he is mentally disturbed but he knew enough to say anti-Semitic things in a shul not in a church. Remember one year ago the 2 “middle eastern” men that taped 2 sephardic shuls in Brooklyn who after were arrested were let go due to a “misunderstanding” both of them traveled from abroad (Syria). this is de blasio’s NYPD.

  2. Recently, theres been numerous episodes in our communities all around the world relating to antisemitism, esp around the Tri-State NY*NJ areas.
    wake up! Dont be in denial. Dont fall for all tbe cover- ups. Its really serious out there. The cops & all our wonderful politicians are making it seem like its just another episode of an emotionally deranged idiot, once again. Wake up! Its not a joke at all.

  3. Unfortunately it’s never going to stop until Masiach. HaSh-m is doing all this to awaken Am Yisrael up from our sleep and do tashva if senas chimam doesn’t stop anit semitism also doesn’t.

  4. It was a misunderstanding:
    he was just talking EXTREMELY loud and knocking VERY hard;
    please try not to make a big deal out of this incident.
