A man who was filmed drawing a swastika in the snow outside a Midtown Manhattan synagogue in February was nabbed Thursday after returning to redraw the Nazi symbol in chalk, cops said.

Manuel Barrera, 50, was seen on security camera at about 9 a.m. scribbling the anti-Semitic symbol — along with a Pentagram and “666” — on the sidewalk outside the Temple Emanu-El at 840 Fifth Ave.

Temple guards called the cops, who were able to nab Barrera before he left the scene, cops said.

The Harlem resident was charged with two counts of aggravated harassment, police said.
