Connecticut Jewish Cemetery Vandalized

Hartford Police have discovered Zion Hill Jewish Cemetery has been recently vandalized.

“You feel the emotions of something that was taken away,” said Leonard Holtz, whose family maintain the sacred burial grounds.

Tombstones were moved around to use as a fireplace and it appears that someone has opened a Rabbi’s mausoleum and took up residence inside.

Holtz says Zion Hill is a cemetery awash with all sorts of vandalism: “Homelessness, is one; drugs and vice, another; and then there’s the criminal.”

Holtz was heard on Channel 3, as was Hartford Police Lt. Aaron Boisvert, who said, “Any vandalism or crime is taken serious.”
