Another Jewish Cemetery Was the Target of an Alleged Anti-Semitic Attack
Less than a week after dozens of gravestones were vandalized at a Jewish cemetery in St. Louis, a similar incident took place in Philadelphia.
Dozens, if not hundreds, of headstones at Mt. Carmel Cemetery, a Jewish cemetery in the Wissinoming section of Philadelphia, were found broken and overturned Sunday morning.
Police said this was an act of vandalism, according to ABC 6.
The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia said it would begin raising funds to help repair the cemetery. After the incident at the St. Louis cemetery -- which contains the remains of Holocaust survivors -- a Muslim-American group raised more than $75,000 in less than a day to offer assistance.
Recently, Jewish centers across the country have been experiencing an increased number of threats.
Speaking last week at the National Museum of African-American History and Culture in Washington, D.C., President Donald Trump commented on this uptick in anti-Semitic attacks.
"The anti-Semitic threats targeting our Jewish community and community centers are horrible and are painful and a very sad reminder of the work that still must be done to root out hate and prejudice and evil," he said.
