from Arutz Sheva:
Dozens of gravestones were desecrated in the Jewish section of the Verano cemetery in Rome, Italy.
It is believed the gravestones were desecrated overnight Thursday. The vandalism was discovered Friday morning by a cemetery employee.
The chief rabbi of Rome, Rabbi Riccardo Di Segni, arrived at the scene to examine the damage and even prayed with the families of those whose tombstones were desecrated.
Local police have launched an investigation.
The Chabad emissary in Rome, Rabbi Menachem Lazar, is helping families who live abroad and whose loved ones’ tombstones were vandalized in rebuilding the tombstones.
