Polish Press Reports Anti-semitism in Brooklyn

A front page story on the desecration, for the third time, of a synagogue in Brooklyn is featured in an issue of the Warsaw Yiddish newspaper “Folkshtimme,” which reached here today. The newspaper’s October 10 issue reported that vandals had entered the “Ahavath Moshe” synagogue at 612 Maple Street in Brooklyn and destroyed prayer books, Bibles and other volumes and had “demolished everything that came under their hands.”

The front page report added that the vandalism had created a “painful impression” on the part of Brooklyn Jewry since it was the third time such an attack had occurred. The newspaper also asserted that it would appear that the act of vandalism was not an isolated incident since similar attacks had occurred not long before in other synagogues in Brooklyn.
