MONMOUTH HEIGHTS - With Rosh Hashanah starting on Sunday, a group of teens wanted to offer a sign of solidarity to a town recently plagued by messages of hate and anti-Semitism.

Teen members of the National Council of Synagogue Youth were on hand to deliver cards and honey, a symbolic gesture during the Jewish holiday, to residents in Monmouth Heights.

Last week, vandals targeted the neighborhood, painting swastikas and anti-Semitic messages and symbols on public and private property all over the neighborhood.

Monmouth County Prosecutors are still investigating the hate crimes.
