The Jewish Council remains fearful of further attacks, like the one on graves at an Auckland cemetery.
Two men have been arrested over the desecration of 20 graves at the cemetery on Symonds Street, which involved obscenities and Nazi swastikas being spray-painted on them.
The pair, aged 19 and 23, have been charged with wilful damage and will appear in court this week.
Jewish Council president Stephen Goodman hopes the arrests mean the end of it.
"We don't know much detail about these people - whether they acted in isolation or part of a group and the other thing we're also scared of is copycat crimes."
Police investigations are continuing, and further arrests are possible.
The investigation into the cemetery attack has been widened, after slogans and swastikas were daubed inside a house nearby.
The property in Grey Lynn was defaced on the same day the graveyard was desecrated, and police are now checking for possible links.
The owner has no idea why the house was targeted - he's not Jewish, and thinks the attack is a random one.
