BROOKLYN - Swastikas were found painted on another Brooklyn synagogue, while police continue to investigate two similar incidents in the past two weeks.

Bensonhurt was the latest area struck.

On Tuesday, 23 symbols of hate were found in Brooklyn Heights. Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said detectives canvassed that area.

Community members said they are moving on as the investigation continues. However, some members of the Brooklyn Heights Jewish community say it is hard to put the incidents behind them, when others keep popping up.

Brooklyn Heights neighbors say the incident does not reflect the neighborhood.

Kelly says detectives believe the Brooklyn Heights incident is the act of one person. The Jewish Community Relations Council is offering a $10,000 reward for anyone with information leading to arrests.
