Chief Rabbi of Israel Rabbi Dovid Lau Shlita on Wednesday 27 Sivan responded to reports of three swastika attacks in Yerushalayim, including one shul.
Rabbi Lau expressed his deep shock at the desecration of the shul and said that “We cannot accept or digest such grave events. I appeal to the enforcement authorities to use the tools available to them and to bring to justice the desecrators of the shul.”
“It is inconceivable for worshipers to come to the shul in the center of the Holy City and reveal such harsh scenes.”
The Chief Rabbi also addressed clergy of various religions, asking them to issue a statement of condemnation and protest against the blasphemy caused by desecration of the shul as well.
