It is forbidden to destroy anything that has Kedushah (sanctity). This includes damaging – even slightly – buildings and furniture belonging to a synagogue or Yeshiva.

It is also forbidden to erase any of the 7 Hebrew names of  G-d.

Applies to everybody, everywhere, always.

Verse: “Do not do so unto Hashem your G-d” (Devarim 12:4)
