    Police need to aggressively investigate two high-profile crimes against Jews in Brooklyn, a group of local pols and community leaders demanded Tuesday.

    “Hate is not a Brooklyn brand,” Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams said at a rally denouncing the recent attacks that have rocked the community.

    “The venom that we have witnessed the past few days is not acceptable,” he said.

    The call for vigilance comes after a surveillance video surfaced Monday of dozens of teens trashing a Crown Heights kosher supermarket Saturday night.

    The mob rushed into Gourmet Butcher, knocked over shelves and pushed products to the floor, the video shows.

    The store’s owner, Yanki Klein, told CBS 2 one of the teens punched his 23-year-old brother in the head.

    Police said they were investigating an assault at the location, but did not have details on the vandalism or if the attack could be bias-fueled.

    “Arrests need to be made,” said Assemblywoman Helene Weinstein, who joined a choir of interfaith leaders calling for justice.

    In a separate assault, a Jewish community leader was slugged by a man waiving a Palestinian flag outside Barclays Center last week.

    Leonard Petlakh, executive director of the Kings Bay Y in Sheepshead Bay, suffered a deep cut above his eye during the 9 p.m. skirmish, police said.

    The incident is being investigated as a hate crime, cops said.

    “We can’t become numb to anti-Semitic violence,” Assemblyman Steven Cymbrowitz said.

    1. Perhaps we need vigilantes if the government is unwilling or too weak to defend tax payers? Perhaps they want us to pay higher taxes? Minorities are abused in this society — we Jews are a minority. We might be the biggest minority…how many religious Jews are there compared to Blacks, Hispanics, etc? Non-religious Jews don’t stand out or identify as Jewish…so they are not part of ‘the minority.’ ‘Afro-Americans’ and Hispanics ‘stand out’ . . . they are recognizable from the WASP majority. No?
      This government is good at helping people thousand of miles away…’The Yazzidin,’ but those close to home don’t merit such love and concern. Remember good Cristians ‘Charity Begins at Home.’

      Will this evil ever end?
