January 12, 2011 | 11:11 am

A large swastika and the word “Nazi” were spray-painted on a Connecticut synagogue.

The graffiti on the B’nai Shalom synagogue in Waterbury was discovered Tuesday morning by worshipers.

Police are investigating the vandalism, which has been classified as a hate crime, according to reports.

U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) visited the synagogue Tuesday, WFSB TV reported.

“An act of hatred like this one is not a prank,” Blumenthal said, adding that the graffiti should be seen as a “criminal action.”
