The Waad Hokolel Cemetery in Rochester, NY was vandalized last week. The toppled tombstones and damaged engravings were discovered on Thursday. NY Governor Cuomo called for the state police to investigate the crime. This is the third Jewish cemetery damaged since February 21 (1, 2).
There were reports of a fourth cemetery having been vandalized in Brooklyn on Sunday, but those headstones that had fallen were deemed to have fallen due to age and the recent windy weather. A cemetery spokesperson stated there was no evidence of vandalism.
