Headstones Vandalized At Jewish Cemetery In Philadelphia : The Two-Way : NPR
Headstones Vandalized At Jewish Cemetery In Philadelphia : The Two-Way : NPR: "Philadelphia police say more than 100 headstones have been damaged at a Jewish cemetery in the northeastern part of the city. The vandalism occurred less than a week after a similar episode in a Jewish cemetery near St. Louis, where more than 150 graves were targeted. Local police arrived at Mt. Carmel Cemetery Sunday morning after getting a call from a man reporting that the headstones of three of his relatives had been damaged. WHYY's Bobby Allyn spoke with Shawn Zevit, a Philadelphia rabbi who described the vandalism as "a hateful act, an attempt to create fear and to tarnish the memory of those who have died and attack their dignity.""
