(JTA) -- An arson attack last year on cars in predominately Jewish Midwood reportedly is being investigated as an insurance scam instead of a hate crime.

The attack on Nov. 11, the day after Kristallnacht commemorations, included the spray-painting with anti-Semitic graffiti of the nearby sidewalk and park benches on or near Ocean Parkway. Elected officials and Jewish leaders roundly condemned the attack.
