Budapest Chabad stoned during seder

(JTA) — A Chabad house in Budapest was stoned during a Passover seder.

The home of Rabbi Shmuel Raskin was stoned twice during the seder on Tuesday night, according to Israel Radio. Police came after the first incident, and the second incident reportedly took place after the police left.

The incident comes amid an election campaign in Hungary some have described as worrisome due to the expected rise of the far-right Jobbik party. No suspects were reported arrested in the attack.
