A Torah scroll was stolen from a Belgian synagogue. Police reported that there were no traces of a break-in after the incident at the Rav Amiel Synagogue in Antwerp last week. They suspect that a person familiar with the building entered using the regular entry code between July 21 and Saturday morning, and used a key to open the Holy Ark.
