Two separate anti-Semitic incidents occurred last week in a northwestern Russian city, according to the Anti-Defamation League. In the first incident in Velikie Luki, 43 graves were damaged in the Jewish cemetery. In the second, windows were shattered in the recently renovated building of the local Chesed, an American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee-funded program that serves elderly Jews.
