Abstract: Let $ N$ be a finite von Neumann algebra (with faithful normal normalized trace $ \tau $), $ G$ a countable discrete group, and $ \alpha $ a $ \tau $-preserving action of $ G$ on $ N$ such that $ N{ \rtimes _\alpha }G$ is a factor. It is proved that if $ N{ \rtimes _\alpha }G$ has Property $ {\text{T}}$, then $ G$ has Kazhdan's Property $ {\text{T}}$.
