Chabad House Vandalized; Mezuzah Destroyed
Chabad of East Boca Raton, FL, which is the subject of a Federal lawsuit filed by neighbors trying to prevent its expansion, was the victim of a vandalism attack last weekend.
Is it hate or a random act of vandalism? One Boca Raton rabbi wants the answer to that question. This comes after someone stole and broke mezuzahs outside a Jewish center.
“It’s very shocking and disturbing. Jarring,” explained Rabbi Ruvi New from the Chabad of East Boca Raton. Friday, he replaced a mezuzah at the main entrance to the Chabad. He said someone stole two mezuzahs from the center last weekend.
“It’s an ancient security system,” New described the purpose of a mezuzah.
