Once again thieves have set their sights on the Erlau Beis Medrash in the Katamon neighborhood of Yerushalayim. In this latest break-in, the office of the Rebbe Shlita was targeted by burglars on Monday morning 22 Tammuz 5773 at about 2am. Silver Judaica items were stolen valued in the tens of thousands of NIS.
A Sefer Torah was stolen from the shul back in 2012, and B’chasdei Hashem it was returned a short time later. Police crime scene investigators responded to the break-in to collect evidence as the investigation continues.
