A hateful man made anti-Semitic comments and threatened to blow up a Brooklyn synagogue as he walked past the building over the weekend, authorities said.
A 23-year-old man was standing in front of Congregation Bnai Usher Tenka, an Orthodox synagogue on 12th Avenue near 47th Street, in Borough Park around 3 p.m. Sunday when the suspect approached him and snarled, “Kill all Jews,” according to police.
He also threatened to blow up the house of worship, authorities said.
The victim was not injured and the suspect took off.
It was unclear whether the victim was a leader at the synagogue or attending a service there.
Cops released surveillance photos of the suspect late Monday, showing him wearing a lime green hoodie and a bandana on his head.
The NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating.
