French Synagogue Vandalized For Third Time in Ten Days

| July 15, 2012

The synagogue of Noisy-le-Grand of the Seine-Saint-Denis district in Paris, was vandalized on Wednesday night, in the third such incident within a ten-day period, The Algemeiner reported.

“I am 73 years old and I cried like a child,” synagogue caretaker Maurice Zana told Anach Infos, a French-language Jewish news website.

“They came to plunder, but all in all they took only two vacuum cleaners,” Zana said. “They must have been upset that there was nothing else to take.”

The perpetrators threw prayer books and shawls on to the floor and shattered windows. “They vandalized the walls, tables, clocks and the floor,” Zana continued. “They ransacked all the drawers where tallisim (prayer shawls) are kept, they threw the holy books on the floor.”
