Download PDF for this date

The New York State Commander of the Jewish War Veterans of the United States called on Police Commissioner Howard R. Leary today to provide special patrols on a continuing basis to protect synagogues, churches and cemeteries against vandalism. Jerome N. Nisman referred to last Sunday’s desecration of Congregation B’nai Jacob in Brooklyn in a telegram to Commissioner Leary. He said, “Whether these vile acts are blatantly anti-religious or acts of malicious mischief, the fact remains that they do occur continuously. Only special patrolling of such institutions will discourage the warped perpetrators of such despicable acts.”
