Vandals defaced the private home of the leader of a secular Jewish education center in Jerusalem's German Colony overnight Thursday, according to Jerusalem Police.
Yaakov Maalkin, provost of the International Institute for Humanistic Secular Judaism based in Jerusalem, discovered biblical verses and a Star of David spray painted in Hebrew on the walls and door of his private home.
The slogan "Amalek beast," in reference to the biblical nation that was enemy to the Jews, was one of the phrases scrawled on Maalkin's property.
A knife was also found at the scene.
Police forces have opened an investigation to determine the circumstances of the incident.
