Ancient Shul Vandalized In Meron

0

Vandals spray-painted graffiti on the ancient shul in the Mount Meron nature reserve, near the tomb of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai.

The walls of the shul were defaced with warnings written in red: “This holy place will not be destroyed, you have been warned,” “There will be no archaeological park here,” “Mount Meron is not abandoned,” and “Be warned.”

Uri Berger, an archaeologist in the Upper Galilee region of the Israel Antiquities Authority, who identified the damage recently, filed a complaint with the police in connection with the destruction of the site, and an investigation was opened in the Antiquities Authority’s anti-theft unit.
