It’s unclear whether this break-in were committed by the same criminals, but in each instance, the thieves have stolen hundreds of dollars in cash and ransacked the synagogue, costing the facility thousands more in damages.
Security upgrades to keep the thugs out – which have been successful for almost two weeks – could cost as much as $10,000.
Officials do not think the burglaries are anti-Semitic and have not seen any graffiti accompanying the vandalism to the synagogue and community center.
