Vandalism at Chabad

Monday, 5 March, 2012 - 8:14 am

We entered Shul this Shabbat morning to find broken glass all over the room. In the cover of darkness, someone had thrown a large rock through the side window so hard that it hit the ark and cracked one of its doors.   We shook the glass off of the tables and held Shabbat services as normal. After Shabbat we filed a police report and cleaned up.

The police are regarding this occurrence as a possible hate crime; however there is no evidence that it is anything more than an unfortunate random act of vandalism. We will continue to be vigilant and we hope that no pattern develops. Regardless of the intent of these vandals, we won't be intimidated or deterred.

Until now we haven't been able to afford an alarm system or camera security, but after this experience we feel that it’s prudent that we make every effort to fully secure our community center. If you can offer any financial support towards obtaining a security system or if you could recommend someone in this business, please call me at 916 608 9811 x 101 or reply to this email. We are appreciative of any assistance you can offer to help prevent another event.
