Home of Netherlands chief rabbi attacked

A chief rabbi of the Netherlands said unidentified individuals hurled stones at his home in what he said was the second anti-Semitic attack against him in a week.

Rabbi Binyomin Jacobs said the latest attack took place July 17, when two stones were hurled through a window of his home in Amersfoort.

An earlier incident outside his home on July 10 ended without damage, he said. Jacobs said his home has been targeted five times in recent years.

“The fact that these attacks are recurrent shows the depth of hatred that exists against Jews,” he added. — jta
