JEWISH ELECTED officials on Monday called for the heads of two city cops caught on tape pummeling a young man who was sleeping inside a Brooklyn synagogue.

An NYPD spokesman said Internal Affairs is investigating the officers’ conduct regarding Ehud Halevy, 21. He was subjected to a barrage of blows after police roused him at the Aliya Institute in Crown Heights Oct. 8, according to a disturbing video that went viral Monday.

“By my count, one officer punched the victim over 20 times after he was already subdued,” said Council member David Greenfield (D-Brooklyn). “That’s insane.” He called for the NYPD to fire the officers, identified in court papers as Luis Vega and Yelena Bruzzese.

Internal Affairs has referred the matter to the Civilian Complaint Review Board, said a police spokesman. Vega has been placed on desk duty.
