An unknown vandal or vandals defaced the wall of the Park Avenue Synagogue, one of the largest synagogues in Manhattan.

On Friday, the word ‘Palestine’ was found written in green ink or paint on the wall of the synagogue.

The word was written under the Biblical verse “How great are your tents O Jacob, your dwelling places O Israel” (Numbers 24:5), directly under the word “Israel.”

The NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating the incident. So far, no arrests have been made.

Synagogue Rabbi Elliot Cosgrove said during services on Friday night, “It’s actually with a heavy heart that we begin Shabbat services tonight … The facility is OK, we are all safe, and it is shocking and it is distressing.”
