  • CST working with the Police following damage to Jewish cemetery

    19 May 2016 by CST

    CST has been working with Greater Manchester Police (GMP) following damage to 14 gravestones at Blackley Jewish Cemetery in Manchester today. CST, GMP and the Jewish Cemetery Trust inspected the gravestones this morning. There was no antisemitic graffiti found; at best this is a despicable act of criminal vandalism and at worst a targeted hate crime. It is likely to cause deep distress to those who have loved ones in the cemetery and to the wider Jewish community.
