Montreal Jews shaken after 4 synagogues, school vandalized
Source: The Gazette


MONTREAL - Montreals Jewish community was reeling Sunday after four synagogues and a Jewish school were targeted by vandals in the early hours of the morning.


Beth Rambam, Tifereth Beth David Jerusalem and Beth Zion synagogues in Cte St. Luc and Dorshei Emet synagogue in Hampstead were all targeted by vandals who threw rocks at the windows of the buildings, smashing several and causing thousands of dollars in damages, said Rabbi Reuben Poupko. The Yavn Academy in Cte St. Luc was also hit.


Poupko, who serves as chairman of the Jewish Community Security Co-ordinating Committee, called the crimes an organized and systematic attack on Jewish institutional life and promised that the people who use the buildings on a regular basis would not be intimidated by the vandals.


The reason its so troubling is that was not an isolated affair, he said.
