A political event hosted by “Broad City” star Ilana Glazer at a historic Brooklyn synagogue was cancelled on November 1 when a vandal scrawled “Kill all Jews” inside.

The NYPD said “anti-Semitic messages” were discovered on the stairwell of Union Temple in Brooklyn Heights at around 8 p.m. Thursday.

At about 8:30, Glazer came out of the venue to tell the crowds that the 8 p.m. event, where she was scheduled to interview journalist Amy Goodman and New York state senate candidates Andrew Gounardes and Jim Gaughran was cancelled because of the graffiti.

The anti-Semitic graffiti comes just a day after vandals drew a swastika and scrawled a racial epithet on a Brooklyn Heights brownstone and less than a week after a mass murder at a Pittsburgh synagogue, where the gunman allegedly yelled “All Jews must die!”

Police were investigating the crime and had no arrests as of Thursday night.
