Stone Cold

Philadelphia—It was a shocking display of mass desecration. In late February, vandals toppled more than 500 tombstones at a Jewish cemetery in the City of Brotherly Love. The police, pictured here on February 26, are still investigating a motive for the crime. The damage comes less than a week after roughly 150 gravestones were vandalized at a Jewish cemetery in St. Louis. Nancy Baron-Baer of the Anti-Defamation League told CNN, “One stone in one cemetery being desecrated is one stone too many.”
