Dozens of bullet holes found in Ohio synagogue

A synagogue in Lima, Ohio, was shot up with bullets.

At least two dozen bullet holes were discovered in the windows of Temple Beth Israel-Shaare Zedek on Shabbat, according to the congregation’s part-time rabbi, Howie Stein, who reported the vandalism in a Facebook post.

“Friday night, we prayed in a sanctuary with three bullet holes in its windows,” Stein wrote. “Services followed a potluck supper, in a social hall with a minyan of holes in its windows, brought out from a kitchen with twice as many holes in its window. Shabbat morning we found three more holes in the upstairs classrooms, no longer used because of the shrinking and aging nature of the congregation. Thankfully, nobody was in the building at the time, and the damage, while emotionally and physically extensive, was not more significant.”

The rabbi said he called on the congregation to use Shabbat to “focus inward, on our own rest and renewal. We must not allow those who hate, and those who act on their hate, to deter us from our cherished beliefs and practices.”

This down hill trend of eroding respect for anyone started with 0bama! Now it is acceptable by the left to hate. Omar is the proof and the dems finally realizing they might have gone too far. Hopefully, the sane voters on the left will remember the party of hate is not working for them when they go to the polls in 2020.

Well now they have their own wailing wall to nod to and tuck prayers in.

The hate stirred up by the newest Democrat congressperson has borne fruit.
