Members of a synagogue in Moncton are worried after a man in the congregation experienced verbal attacks at two separate stores.
Irwin Lampert, president of the Tiferes Israel Synagogue, believes the attacks could be related to the recent violence in Israel and Gaza.
“The people who confronted someone like this are nothing but vile, hateful, antisemites and cowards,” Lampert said.
“People like this don’t have any place in Moncton.”
On Friday, someone shot the back windows of the synagogue with a BB gun-causing the windows to break. The window in the rabbi’s office has been shattered.
“It’s quite a mess,” Lampert said.
