A Brooklyn rabbi and his wife were beaten by brutes who peppered them with anti-Semitic insults during an attack at a synagogue they run in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi.

Rabbi Shmuel Notik and his wife, Chaya, were attacked Tuesday night by five stick-wielding crooks who spewed hatred before stealing cash, computers, passports and other valuables, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency reported.

The wife escaped further injury by locking herself and their young children in a bathroom until the robbers fled, the news agency reported.

The couple moved to East Africa from Brooklyn to run an outreach center for the small Jewish community there.

A member of the Hasidic Chabad sect, Shmuel Notik made headlines in 2011 by trudging 15 miles from Crown Heights to the Bronx to worship with a dying congregation in the Parkchester section.
