Another hate crime shocked Brooklynites this week when a vile villain scrawled an obscene anti-Semitic missive across a Windsor Terrace Jewish center’s sign — just days before the holy day of Yom Kippur.

The biased bad guy wrote the two-word graffiti message — which began with the letter “F” and ended with the word “Jews” — in permanent marker on Chabad of Windsor Terrace’s sign of overnight on Tuesday.

“This is terrible,” said Rabbi Moshe Hecht, who oversees the religious center on Prospect Avenue between Reeve Place and Greenwood Avenue.

“The holiest day of the Jewish calendar is coming up, and this is not the way as Jews in the community that we would like to go into the holiday.”

The attack also comes days after a similar assault on a Brooklyn Heights Unitarian church (see page 6).
