It is being called the “most heinous” in terms of the graffiti and desecration of the Congregation Sepharde Kol Yehudaa.
A Montreal Synagogue has been desecrated in a horrible anti-Semitic act of vandalism.
The Congregation Sepharde Kol Yahudaa was covered in grafitti with anti-Semitic slurs, while a Torah had been ripped up and shoved into a toilet.
Additionally, floors were covered in red paint, artifacts were broken, and prayer shawls were thrown into the bathroom.
B’Nai Brith is calling this “one of the worst such incidents to take place in Canada in years,” adding “This disgusting act of antisemitism comes on the eve of our holiday of Shavuot, a celebration of the Jews receiving the Torah, especially the Ten Commandments.”
While many politicians refuse to address it or confront it, the fact remains that anti-Semitism continues to be a serious threat in Canada, with Jewish Canadians facing the most discrimination of any group according to hate crime statistics.
