Two Jewish cemeteries in this city were invaded by vandals yesterday who overturned and destroyed headstones. Officials of the cemeteries estimated the total damage at about $1,000.

The cemeteries, both in the Glendale section of Queens, are operated by two different synagogues: Congregation Rodeph Sholom and Temple Emanu-El.
