      Talmud-Era Sage's Tomb Defaced Near Tzfat

      Unidentified vandals caused damage to the tomb of Talmudic sage Yonatan Ben Uziel Saturday. The tomb is located near Amuka, in the vicinity of Tzfat, in the Upper Galilee. The vandals smashed a sink and tore down a mechitza that separates men and women's prayer sections. The walls of the structure that holds the grave were covered with black spray-painted graffiti that said "Druze price tag" and "Nebi Hader will not be neglected."
