A Ukrainian synagogue was attacked, but no one was hurt. Vandals threw stones and stole a security camera Monday at the Ner Tamid shul in Simferopol, but no one was hurt. A video recording obtained with the shul’s other surveillance camera showed two young men who appeared to be in their late teens who committed the attack. Anatoly Gendin, president of the Association of Jewish Communities and Organizations of Crimea, informed local police about the incident. He later told JTA that police failed to show up at the scene promptly. Acts of anti-Semitic vandalism have been occurring in southern Ukraine almost every month for the past year, local Jews said.
