Two vandals broke in overnight, ascending the bima (platform from which the Rabbi and cantor conduct services), overturning the lectern, ripping down lamps and throwing prayer shawls and other ritual items to the floor. New York Police Department have gathered fingerprints and CCTV footage and are investigating the incident as a hate crime.
