Jewish centers in U.S. cope with bomb threats; graves vandalized

Vice President Mike Pence condemned "vile act of vandalism" at a suburban St. Louis Jewish cemetery, where more than 150 headstones were damaged during last month.

Meredith Dragon, chief executive of the Jewish Federation of Greater Rochester, said local police were not yet ready to determine whether the toppling of a dozen or more headstones in the Stone Road or Waad Hakolel Cemetery overnight Wednesday was an act of petty vandalism or a targeted hate crime.

Cuomo on Friday said NY would have zero tolerance for hate crimes, saying State Police continue to investigate the incidents.

An official there is quoted in the D&C as saying he doesn't know if it is a hate crime at this point, but Cuomo says given recent incidents at Jewish cemeteries nationwide as well as bomb threats made to Jewish Community Centers, he wants an investigation.

Rally against hate rally held in. The Stand Against Hate rally was meant to show solidarity, regardless of race, religion, or creed. Governor Tom Wolf, Attorney General Josh Shapiro, Mayor Jim Kenney, and Archbishop Charles Chaput were among those who spoke at the rally.

It was the fifth round of bomb threats against Jewish institutions since January, prompting outrage and exasperation among Jewish leaders as well as calls for an aggressive federal response to put a stop to it.

"I am interested in using this vantage point to look at the world in a way we wouldn't otherwise", he said.

"It's nearly not even a hate crime", Phillips said.

They say here in the Dolyestown area speciffically the KKK has been spreading hate literature.
