Dozens of Headstones Broken at Jewish Cemetery in Philadelphia

Incident comes just under a week after similar vandalism occurred as a Jewish cemetery in St. Louis.

Feb 26, 2017 8:20 PM

A Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia apparently became the victim of vandalism Sunday, when police were alerted that dozens, perhaps hundreds, of headstones had been broken and toppled over. …

The report came after a Jewish cemetery in St. Louis last week was vandalized in a similar manner, increasing concern in the Jewish community over an increase in anti-Semitic incidents that some have connected to the candidacy and presidency of Donald Trump.

It was North New Jersey resident Aaron Mallin who reportedly discovered the overturned headstones, according to the report.

“It’s just very disheartening that such a thing would take place,” Mallin said. “I’m hoping it was maybe just some drunk kids. But the fact that there’s so many it leads one to think it could have been targeted.”

In a continuing surge of anti-Semitic acts and threats across the US, several hundred gravestones were toppled or damaged at a Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, late Saturday night. The attack came amid a wave of bomb threats against Jewish community centers and schools and less than a week after vandals overturned some 200 headstones at Jewish cemetery in University City, a suburb of St. Louis, Missouri. While police initially reported that upward of 100 headstones were vandalized at the Mount Carmel Cemetery in Philadelphia, volunteers helping clean up on Sunday stated that more than 500 grave sites had been damaged. Destruction at the cemetery was extensive, with row after row of headstones knocked over; some stones, more than a century old, were split in half: here.

By Jane Dugdale, War Is A Crime in the USA: “Philadelphia City Council, by a vote of 15-2, passed a resolution ‘calling on the U.S. Congress to bring all U.S. troops home from Afghanistan, to take the funds saved by that action and by significantly cutting the Pentagon budget, and to use that money to fund education, public and private sector family-sustaining job creation, special protections for military sector workers, environmental and infrastructure restoration, care for veterans and their families, and human services that our cities and states so desperately need'”: here.
