Fall River, Mass. (Aug. 18)
Damage estimated at $1,500 was caused by vandals who desecrated the Both David Synagogue here. A city-wide investigation has been launched by police authorities. This is the second incident of its kind to occur in Fall River.
Rewards of $200 for information leading to the arrest of the vandals have been offered by Rabbi Benjamin Lipschutz and Abraham Yoken. The Jewish community has received pledges of support from non-Jewish religious and civic leaders in Fall River who have condemned the vandalism.
