SOUTH FALLSBURG, NY — Fallsburg police removed anti-Semitic graffiti on Wednesday on a road in South Fallsburg.

Police found swastikas and nooses drawn on Westwood Drive near summer bungalows where orthodox Jews vacation.

“It was just somebody venting,” Chief Simmie Williams said. But Rabbi Yakov Barros said the matter should be investigated fully.

“Whenever something like this is found anywhere, whether against Jewish or African-American people, people need to be educated about it and it has to be publicized,” Barros said. “A Holocaust survivor was walking down that road and they said it was very painful. It must be horrible to them. When they see this it is really a bitter feeling, a tragic feeling.”

CHI Ed: The graffiti was found on a road near a few Lubavitch bungalow colonies.
