Synagogue vandal may have struck before

| February 6, 2011

MONTREAL – Police investigating last month's string of overnight attacks against Jewish religious and community centres are examining whether there are links with a series of similar crimes 12 months earlier.

"Last year we had … five (Jewish institutions) vandalized and that was around Jan. 26," Sylvain Bissonnette, commander of District 9, told reporters Thursday. "This year we had … six institutions (vandalized) on Jan. 16."

In the latest attacks, several windows were smashed with thrown rocks at Beth Rambam, Tifereth Beth David Jerusalem and Beth Zion synagogues in Cote St. Luc and Dorshei Emet synagogue in Hampstead.
