he Toronto Jewish commu-
nity is trying to rally after a
rash of anti-Semitic incidents
last weekend.
Unknown perpetrators broke seven
stained-glass windows at the Pride of
Israel Synagogue and spray-painted
swastikas and anti-Semitic messages at
locations along Bathurst Street. United

Jewish Appeals signs in the city also were
defaced and swastikas were painted on a-
clothing donation box.
The damage was discovered Saturday,
March 20. In a separate incident discov-
ered early Sunday, 22 cemetery tomb-
stones were toppled in the nearby
Bathurst-Lawn Jewish Cemetery.
"We had a weekend of hate in
Toronto," said Bernie Farber, executive
director of the Ontario region of
Canadian Jewish Congress, after inspect-
ing the damage at the cemetery with

police on Sunday morning. Members of
the Jewish community and supporters
gathered at one of the vandalized homes
Sunday morning to remove swastikas
and hate messages.
The Jewish community is considering
posting a reward, according to Farber,
and a community rally was scheduled
for Wednesday evening.
"We're not intimidated, but we're cer-
tainly angry," Farber said. "The commu-
nity is on edge. We've faced adversities
for countless generations. We're a strong
people. We'll deal with this and we'll do
what we have to do to protect our com-
The incidents took place only days
after vandals spray-painted swastikas and
hate messages in a Jewish neighborhood
in the Toronto suburb of Thornhill.
Canadian officials were quick to
express their outrage. 'As prime minis-
ter, I condemn them," Paul Martin
wrote in a letter to the Canadian Jewish
Congress. 'As a Canadian, as a human
being, I condemn them."
Law enforcement officials pledged to
investigate the attacks. "I couldn't believe
the damage — I've never seen anything
like it," said Michael Bryant, the

Ontario attorney general, one of numer-
ous officials to survey the cemetery
destruction. The provincial government
"is going to do everything in its power
to end any campaign of hate, however
isolated," Bryant said,
Toronto Police Chief Julian Fantino
ordered all patrolling officers to pay spe-
cial attention to Jewish establishments
and organizations. Fantino visited the
cemetery Sunday morning and
expressed outrage at the gravestone dese-
cration. "This is disgusting," he said. "It
means there are people with hate in
their hearts who think that there is a
level of permissibility for this.
"These are cowardly acts of attempted
intimidation. The entire community,
not just the Jewish part of the commu-
nity, will be watching very closely from
now on.
The incidents rekindled disturbing
memories for many Holocaust survivors
who attended a memorial service
Sunday marking the 60th anniversary of
the Holocaust in Hungary.
'Anti-Semitism to me is like a cancer,"
said Irving Roth, a 74-year-old survivor
who attended the ceremony. "Once you
have it, you have to be vigilant." I I

group went inside a campus build-
ing, many Jewish students followed
and a brief melee erupted involving
hundreds of students.
In response, university adminis-
trators forbade the groups from
sponsoring rallies or lectures on
campus for a week.

"We do view the suspension as
an overreaction," said Zac Kaye,
executive director of Hillel of
Greater Toronto. "Our hope is that
it will be lifted and that Hillel will
be able to resume its activities as

Toronto Campus Groups Banned

Toronto/JTA -- A Toronto univer-
sity rescinded permission for
demonstrations by Jewish and
Palestinian student groups after
recent clashes.
Students from Hillel and the
Young Zionist Partnership had
attained a permit for an outdoor



vigil at York University last week
for victims of suicide bombings.
Many became incensed when pro-
Palestinian activists set up an unau-
thorized, street-theater-style
demonstration nearby with mock
Israeli checkpoints and soldiers.
When members of the Palestinian
