Dozens of headstones overturned at Philadelphia Jewish cemetery

Posted February 27, 2017

In the latest development in a rash of anti-Semetic threats and vandalism around the country, vandals have desecrated the Mount Carmel Cemetery on Frankford Avenue in Wissinoming, which is in Northeast Philadelphia.

Mallin told the news station he believes the scope of the destruction suggests this may have been a targeted attack rather than an isolated incident.

Special investigators with the University City Police Department in St. Louis, Missouri are still reviewing security footage to try to determine who was behind widespread damage last week at the historic Chesed Shel Emeth Jewish Cemetery.

The damage comes less than a week after a Jewish cemetery in suburban St. Louis reported more than 150 headstones vandalized, many of them tipped over.

"I'm hoping it was maybe just some drunk kids", he said.

The last cast member born in the area was singer Chaka Khan, who came in last place on Season 21 in 2015. She even told them that she would love to dance with Sasha Farber.

Jewish organizations immediately condemned the incident.

"The Philadelphia Jewish cemetery desecration is shocking and a source of worry", said Foreign Ministry Spokesman Emmanuel Nachshon in a statement to media. "Full confidence U.S. authorities catch and punish culprits".

The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia said it would begin accepting donations at its website,, on Sunday to raise money for repairs. Gov. Eric Greitens, the state's first Jewish governor, called the vandalism "cowardly" and "a pitiful act of ugliness".

Reacting to the vandalism, The Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect tweeted simply: "WE ARE SICKENED, SICKENED, SICKENED". "More Jewish gravestones were found vandalized today, this time in Philadelphia".
