Grave of Previous Sadigura Rebbe Desecrated

Visitors to the grave of the recently-deceased Sadigura Rebbe in Giv'atayim, east of Tel Aviv, were shocked, on Friday, to discover that the tombstone of his predecessor, known as the Ba'al Knesset Mordechai, had been smashed.

Police are investigating. One of the hasidim who was present said it was the first such incident of descration at the cemetery, where many prominent rabbis are buried.
