(JTA) – The parents of New York State’s Assistant Attorney General Jenny Michael were attacked with anti-Semitic vandalism.
Michael’s father, former New York City budget director Philip Michael, discovered the vandalism Sunday morning on the door to the family’s home in a Riverdale neighbourhood of the Bronx.
The word “Jew” was spray painted in large white letters on the black front door while the family was sleeping.
A New York Police Department spokesperson told the New York Post that the incident is being investigated as a hate crime.
Despite the fact that several Jewish families live in the neighbourhood, Michael’s house was the only one vandalized, Jenny Michael told the Post.
