French synagogue vandalized again

(JTA) – A synagogue in Paris was vandalized for the third time in 10 days. 

Vandals threw prayer books and tallitot to the floor and shattered windows at the synagogue of Noisy-le-Grand of the Seine-Saint-Denis district, according to The Algemeiner.  

The only items stolen were two vacuum cleaners, synagogue caretaker Maurice Zana told Anach Infos, a French-language Jewish news website, according to The Algemeiner.

“They must have been upset that there was nothing else to take,” he reportedly said.

After the incident, the French anti-Semitism watchdog group, the Bureau National de Vigilance Contr L’Antisemtisme (BNVCA), called for additional security measures to be implemented.

“Despite the measures taken, things persist, and I think that we need additional legislation, because the Jewish community is angered,’’ BNVCA president Sammy Ghozlan told The Algemeiner.
