The Anti-Defamation League of New England is offering a $1,000 reward for information for information about the person responsible.

“This anti-Semitic act represents a direct threat to the Jewish community and is a reminder that hate never rests, even in a pandemic,” said ADL New England regional director Robert Trestan in a statement. “We are grateful to Brookline police who remain on the front lines, sacrificing themselves to keep us safe.”

The Brookline Police Department is treating the incident as a hate crime.
