Gravestones overturned at Conn. Jewish cemetery

(JTA) — Some 40 gravestones were overturned at a Jewish cemetery in Hartford, Conn.

The damage throughout the Congregation Ados Beth Israel Cemetery took place sometime between Oct. 12 and Oct. 19, according to The Associated Press. No arrests have been made.

The vandalism was discovered by a man who regularly visits the grave of his son, who was killed while serving in the U.S. military, according to WTNH-TV.

WTNH reported that the gravestones were knocked off their bases, including one large stone which would have taken at least two people to topple.
