Download PDF for this date

Unknown vandals once again attacked the synagogue and Jewish community center of this Paris suburb, damaging the exterior of the youth club and breaking windows. The president of the Jewish community, Charles Hababou, reported the attack to the regional Prefect who expressed his “concern” about the incident and assured the community of the vigilance of the police to prevent further such incidents. Hababou speculated that the vandalism was committed by persons living near the synagogue. There were similar attacks several month ago.
