PHOTOS: Bobov Shul in Lakewood Vandalized

bobov-img4The Bobov Shul in Lakewood was vandalized on Friday, TLS has learned. Sources say the burglar, or burglars, entered the Kennedy Boulevard Shul in the early-morning hours on Friday, and proceeded to vandalize the Shul.

Windows, tables, and the Bimah were spray‎-painted, and shelves were broken and Sefarim left strewn around the Shul.

The first to notice the burglary phoned Chaveirim, who in turn phoned police, a Chaveirim coordinator tells TLS.

“When you’re a victim of such an incident, the first thi‎ng to do is phone police,” the Coordinator says.

Chaveirim did respond however, and assisted with the clean-up.

Authorities are investigating the incident.

  1. It’s painful to read stories about shuls being broken into and vandalized and sadly so often. In this case where there was no theft just destruction born out of hatred is especially disturbing. We really need yo get our finger on the pulse and once and for all catch these thugs before they strike again.
