Manhattan, NY – A Sukkah constructed by a Chabad center on Manhattan’s Upper East Side was found vandalized on Sunday, Hoshana Rabba.

The NYPD was on scene investigating the sukkah at Carl Schurz Park, defaced with the words “FREE GAZA” written in blavk spray-paint.

The NYPD’s Hate Crime Task Force is investigating the graffiti as a possible bias incident, officials said.

It’s believed the vandalism went down sometime between midnight and 8 a.m. Sunday, when it was reported to police.
