|(IsraelNN.com) The Geulat Yisrael Synagogue near Tel Avivs Shenkin Street was vandalized on Tuesday night.|
When worshippers arrived on Wednesday morning, they were horrified to see the damage, tefillin (phylacteries) strewn on the ground aside holy books, furniture damaged and destroyed and the sanctuary covered in dust and ashes.
Menashe, a Holocaust survivor broke out in tears when realizing the tefillin that accompanied him through the war years were now gone, the daily Hamodia reports.
Synagogue sexton Eldad Sagi commented that if such an attack took place in the Diaspora, the world would be up in arms over the blatant anti-Semitism, but since it took place in Israel, no one seems to care.
