Montreal Jewish leader: Vandalism not always made public

| |

Not all recent acts of vandalism against the Montreal Jewish community have been made public, the head of the Montreal Jewish Federation Combined Jewish Appeal’s security coordinating committee has disclosed.

Recent media reports have focused on anti-Semitic incidents directed at five synagogues and a school on January 16. However, the head of the committee, Rabbi Reuven Poupko, told The Jerusalem Post that there were other acts of vandalism over the last 18 months that had been reported on a timely basis to the police, but deliberately kept from the media. As a result, members of the Montreal Jewish and general community have not been aware of all of these acts.
