Two shuls on Rabbi Tarfon street in Ramat Beit Shemesh B were broken into overnight, according to a report in Hadarei Hadarim.

In the “Beit Aharon” synagogue, Torah scroll covers and accouterments, as well as the shofars were stolen.

In the synagogue near “Leah Imeinu”, the Torah was stolen.

The Torah was found later, dumped in the nearby woods, but stripped of its cover and silver accouterments.

While robbing the shuls of their gold and silver, the thieves damaged the shul.

Photos from the scene can be found on the Hadarei Hadarim website.
