Ra’anana rabbis condemn attack on Reform synagogue

| April 18, 2011

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Some 14 Orthodox rabbis and public figures from Ra'anana signed a letter condemning an attack on a Reform synagogue in the central Israel city.

Ra'anana Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Peretz was among those who signed the letter, which was released Sunday.

The World Union for Progressive Judaism also condemned the April 14 attack, the third time the Raanan Synagogue has been vandalized in the past year.

Six of the synagogue's windows were smashed in by large rocks and a black Star of David was spray-painted on the wall above the words "It has begun."

City officials and the Reform umbrella group both indicated that the vandalism pointed to Jewish religious extremists, though police said they had no suspects.
