A sukkah in the Russian city of Kaliningrad was torched Oct. 18, one day after it was defaced with swastikas, according to the Moscow office of the Anti- Defamation League. The sukkah had been erected in a yard adjacent to the offices of the local Jewish community. Jewish officials there say a lack of funds is preventing them from setting up a security system.
