Another Incident of Cemetery Vandalism

It's always sad to read about vandalism in cemeteries. This one happened in the Cincinnati community of West Price Hill. About 40 headstones in a Jewish cemetery there were toppled. The article states that some were "pulled from their foundations." The good news is that the stones were not destroyed and the damage can be repaired, but you are left wondering who would do such a thing and why.

    This is very sad. This week we've had a serious incident where gravestones were defaced with spray paint at a Jewish cemetery right outside Chicago: http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/chi-cemetery-vandalism_bothfeb05,0,3764793.story

  • I always hate to hear these stories, but even more so when it hits close to home.
