BROOKLYN - A hateful message has been found written on the street in front of a synagogue in Williamsburg.

The message, written in chalk, was found outside a synagogue near Berry and South 8th streets.

This incident comes after several swastikas were found written on shopping centers, synagogues and religious bath houses earlier in the week in Borough Park and Kensington.

Police say they are canvassing the neighborhood for possible witnesses.
