An Antisemitic hate crime occurred at the Crown Hights Post office at 1234 St. John’s Place, where Jewish books were swapped to lehavdil missionary Christian books.
In multiple deliveries, one included ten sealed sets of Dvar Malchus books (and two sets Sefer Hasichos) were swapped to missionary materials when being shipped off to the Chabad Yeshiva in Baltimore, only a couple of sets were delivered in a bad condition, while the others were delivered with missionary materials. In another incident a few sets of Dvar Malchus shipped to Los Angeles were also swapped.
Lawyers that were contacted said this would be considered a hate crime (which would constitute a federal crime). The post office has ignored requests for help.
The story will be updated when more information is available.
