A spokesperson for Waad Hakolel Cemetery said the damage was brought to their attention within the last several hours.

While local law enforcement performs an investigation, Wolf urged Sessions to designate the actions as hate crimes to "allow for more resources and ensure that the concerns of all Jewish Pennsylvanians, and those of all faiths standing in solidarity with them, are met".

University City police are hoping those responsible for toppling headstones at the "Chesed Shel Emeth" Jewish cemetery have done some bragging about it.

Michael Phillips, the president of the Britton Road Association that oversees the cemetery, said, "There's no evidence of desecration, which leads us to believe that it was just a random act of violence, random act of vandalism". Greece police determined the crimes were not motivated by hate. It was incorporated in the 1920s, and is essentially a collection of sections owned by various Jewish congregations or organizations, said Gullack.

The election is billed as a major test for the Okram Ibobi Singh-led Congress government in the state which has been in power for the last 15 years.

Since Thursday's events, cemetery officials have had time to reflect on the mark the vandalism has left on the public so far.

Vandals knocked over at least a dozen headstones, defacing some, in a Jewish cemetery in Rochester, New York, the third such incident in less than two weeks.

Meredith Dragon is the CEO of the Jewish Federation of Greater Rochester, and she's glad officials are showing a lot of concern about these incidents.
