On Wednesday, a congregant and his son, when picking up items for the upcoming Shavuout holiday, discovered Torah scrolls dumped on the floor, and other religious items shoved into toilets.
 
Owned by Armand Moyal, the Sephardic congregation in suburban Montreal has been closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so it is unclear when the break-in and desecration occurred. Montreal police and the Hate Crimes Unit have been alerted.

Thank you for choosing TheJ.Ca as your source for Canadian Jewish News.

We do news differently!

Our positioning as a Zionist News Media platform sets us apart from the rest. While other Canadian Jewish media are advocating increasingly biased progressive political and social agendas, TheJ.Ca is providing more and more readers with a welcome alternative and an ideological home.

We revealed the incursion of anti-Israel progressive elements such as IfNotNow into our communities. We have exposed the distorted hateful agenda of the “progressive” left political radicals who brought Linda Sarsour to our cities, and we were first to report on many disturbing incidents of Nazi-based hate towards Jews across Canada.

But we can’t do it alone. We need your HELP!

Our ability to thrive and grow in 2020 and beyond depends on the generosity of committed readers and supporters like you.

Monthly support is a great way to help us sustain our operations. We greatly appreciate any contributions you can make to support Jewish Journalism.

We thank you for your ongoing support.

Happy reading!
