(JTA) -- Swastikas were painted on two public libraries and a synagogue in Queens.
The vandalism, which occurred on the night of Nov. 3, targeted the East Elmhurst Library, the Jackson Heights Library and Congregation Tifereth Israel in Corona.
The swastikas were removed from the libraries and covered up at the synagogue by the next afternoon. Police are reported to be investigating the vandalism as hate crimes.
On Nov. 4, elected officials held a rally against hate and bias crimes at one of the vandalized libraries.
It’s Nov. 1, and two buckets piled high with tempting goodies sit on my kitchen counter.
