Vandals
Hit Cemetery

Great Neck, N.Y. (JTA) —
Jewish leaders have set up a
fund to cover the cost of
reparing a Jewish cemetery
in Queens that was
desecrated twice in 10 days
earlier this month.
"This is not just an act of
vandalism," said Manny
Behar, executive director of
the Queens Jewish Council,
which set up the fund.
"The authorities have to
understand that for people
in our community, we re-
member another place and
another time when people
scrawled 'Kill the Jews,' and
that was the forerunner of
something far worse. We
thought we left that behind
in Europe," said Mr. Behar.
In cooperation with
cemetery owners and vol-
unteers, the council also has
organized a May 1 cemetery
clean-up day.
Sometime between April
1-4, vandals broke into the
Bayside Cemetery in Queens
and overturned approx-
imately 50 headstones,
opened coffins and damaged
four mausoleums, said
Queens police officials. The
vandals left bones strewn
throughout the cemetery.
Then, on April 12, vandals
scrawled with magic marker
anti- Semitic epithets like
"kill Jews" and "hate Jews"
on three mausoleums and
one monument.
The 125-year-old cemetery
is owned by Shaare Zedek, a
Conservative congregation
in Manhattan.
Following the ugly in-
cidents, support from legal
and political leaders has
been rapid andforceful.
"I join in the expression of
shock, dismay and outrage
over the desecration of this
cemetery," said New York
Attorney General G. Oliver
Koppel. "I will do every-
thing in my power to speak
out against anti-Semitism
and to bring to justice those
who violate the sanctity of
cemeteries and holy places."
Mr. Koppel urged the state
legislature to pass a hate
crimes bill that would in-
crease the penalties for bias
crimes. Similar voices of
support came from Queens
District Attorney Richard
Brown, Borough President
Claire Shulman and City
Council member Karen
Koslowitz.
In the past, vandals have
overturned grave stones,
0 broken windows and spray-
painted "Kill the Jews" and
other epithets on cemetery
property. 0
