Belz and Gur Targeted on Shabbos by Vandals


belzDelinquent youths are believed to be responsible for breaking into both the Gur and Belz Beis Medrash in the Rova Zayin area of Ashdod on Friday night.

The Belz Beis Medrash on Yehuda HaNasi Street was broken into and it appears the thieves searched for items of value in the boxes belonging to mispallalim. After they were done in that location it appears they headed to the Gur Beis Medrash on HaTalmud Street where they did the same. Significant damage was reported in both locations.

It is reported that on the previous Shabbos the Belz-affiliated Beis David Shaul Beis Medrash was targeted.

Due to the number of incidents, residents are looking into joining forces and hiring a community wide patrol service.
