ROCKLAND COUNTY, NY — More hate graffiti has been found in Clarkstown. Swastikas and the word “hate” were spray painted on a real estate sign advertising a home for sale in Nanuet, the sidewalk and a nearby stop sign. The vandalism was discovered Saturday. The realtor is a Jewish-owned business, according to the Orthodox Jewish Public Affairs Council.

OJPAC reported Monday morning that the grafitti had been painted out.

Anti-Semitic graffiti was found last week on rocks at High Tor State Park. The graffiti included swastikas and racial epithets, according to the Rockland County Legislature, which noted that it was located near the park’s peak.

The real estate sign graffiti joins a growing list of anti-Semitic vandalism in Rockland in the past year. The legislature’s resolution also condemns the May 25 discovery of “No Jews” being spray painted on a Haverstaw home’s basement wall; the Feb. 21 discovery of swastikas being spray painted on a fence in New Square; a Feb. 6 announcement of swastikas being found on trees in New City; a Nov. 14 discovery of “No Jews” being spray painted on a road in front of a pair of Ramapo houses for sale; and “incendiary devices” being set off last Aug. 9 outside the New City homes of two rabbis.
