Brooklyn man, 39, is charged with a hate crime after 'vandalizing four synagogues with derogatory graffiti'

 A Brooklyn man has been arrested and charged with a hate crime for allegedly vandalizing four synagogues last week.

The New York Police Department says 39-year-old Emil Benjamin went on a graffiti spree at four Brooklyn-area synagogues: Kahal Darkei Noam, Young Israel Senior Services, Khal Toras Chaim D'Flatbush, and Bais Avigdor.

The suspect is accused of writing 'pedophiles' in red marker on a side door entrance to the Young Israel synagogue, a police spokesperson told DailyMail.com. Police say the other graffiti also included derogatory phrases, but did not reveal any specifics.

At Bais Avigdor, police say, Benjamin broke into the synagogue, marked it with graffiti, broke several cabinets, and stole $20.

According to a LexisNexis search, Benjamin has lived in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Midwood around the corner from the Young Israel synagogue.

The incidents, which are being investigated by NYPD's Hate Crimes Task Force, occurred between midnight and 1:30am on December 23.

'I was disgusted to my core to learn of the anti-Semitic acts of vandalism that occurred in Brooklyn over the weekend,' Governor Andrew Cuomo said in a statement last week. 

'Let us remember, hate, in any of its forms, will not be tolerated in New York and we will always stand united against the cowards who seek to sow division and attack people for who they are or what they believe.'

  2. In all instances of "Schmuckerism" where Jews paint swastikas etc... and are not caught in the act, it is always blamed on anti-Semites...In this instance of "Schmukerism", Emil Benjamin,has drawn attention to the rampant paedophilia in his Brooklyn(home of Jeffrey Epstein et al...)community

    Pfefferkorn soon began hitting Kohn or slapping his knuckles with a stick in front of other students, then to “touch, rub and massage” Kohn’s penis in school, and force him to engage in oral sex, the suit charges.

    At a “mikvah,” a bath where boys were nude, Pfefferkorn trapped Kohn against a wall and “forcefully” raped him anally, he charges.

    When Kohn went to Zitronenbaum to report that abuse, the rabbi violently beat him and told him “to never speak of Pfefferkorn’s behavior again,” according to court papers. The yeshiva later booted Kohn from its high school — sending a signal to the community...Go figure...
