The third vandalism in a week against the Belzer Yeshiva in Brooklyn was reported by its director, Rabbi Zvi Kestenbaum. He estimated damages at several thousand dollars.

He said that the vandals entered the building during the weekend and destroyed school records and other documents. They also ransacked luggage of pupils preparing to attend camp and poured paint on floors which they tracked through the building.
