Rompieron la puerta de un Beit Jabad en Canadá
Thornhill, Ont. – A stranger broke the glass door of Beit Chabad Flamingo in the province of Ontario, Canada, on Wednesday. In this regard, the rabbi of the institution, Mendel Kaplan, wrote on Facebook: “Clearly, this is a deliberate and premeditated attack on a synagogue.”
According to footage from the security cameras, a person wearing a hooded winter jacket is seen lifting a large stone and throwing it energetically against one of the glass doors of the synagogue.
A second video shows what appears to be the same person pushing a stone against a glass door. The stone breaks in two and the attacker is seen moving away, only to return seconds later to pick up a piece of the stone and throw it to the door again.
The spokeswoman for the hate crime unit of the Regional Police reported that she was notified and is “engaged” in the investigation.
For his part, Michael Mostyn, CEO of B’nai Brith Canada, said: “It is so despicable and regrettable that someone feels the need to resort to such vile behavior. We are confident that the police will investigate this matter seriously. “
Also, Noah Shack of the Center for Israel and Jewish Affairs said that “whenever a synagogue is vandalized in this way, it evokes memories of some of the worst moments in Jewish history.” “We stand shoulder to shoulder with Chabad Flamingo and your membership at this challenging time, “adding that your organization’s team is ready to help any synagogue that seeks to strengthen its security systems and protocols.
Finally, Gila Martow, a member of the local Legislative Assembly, said in a statement on Wednesday: “The Jewish community unfortunately remains one of the most targeted minority groups (of attacks).” Today’s events are a reminder that Much work remains to be done to combat the forces of hatred and anti-Semitism. “
