The Jewish community on Montreal was stunned Sunday after vandals attacked synagogues and a Hebrew school in the early hours of the morning.
Local Rabbi Reuben Poupko said that Beth Rambam, Tifereth Beth David Jeruaelm, and Beth Zion synagogues in Côte St. Luc and Dorshei Emet synagogue in Hampstead had their sustained thosands of dollars of damage when local vandals threw stones at their windows, local Canadian news daily The Gazette reported Sunday. The Yavne Academy in Côte St. Luc was also vandalized.
Montreal police visited the five sites Sunday, and have taken local security-camera footage for their investigation. The security cameras had been installed in the last few years due to the rise in attacks on Jewish-community buildings, Rabbi Poupko explained. “We felt this was a necessary investment,” he said
Poupko went on to describe the events as part of a chain of attacks that have occured in the last few months, and complained that until now such events “haven’t garned any attention,” adding that “it’s increasing in intensity and frequency. These are not just crimes against a buildings. They’re crimes against a community.”

Jeremiah 16:16 says:
Behold, I am going to send for many fishermen,” declares the LORD, “and they will fish for them; and afterwards I will send for many hunters, and they will hunt them from every mountain and every hill and from the clefts of the rocks.
Israel’s Christian friends and Jewish citizens have been urging Diaspora Jews to make Aliyah, or emigrate to Israel, for decades. These were the “fishers” spoken of in this prophecy.
In recent years more Jews have come home to Eretz Israel, but the vast majority of Jews in the affluent Western world are not in any hurry, so now God is sending out the “hunters.”
This is already apparent in Sweden, France, South Africa and many other countries, and it should come as no surprise to Jews in Canada and the US that it is now happening where they live. American, Canadian and Western European Jews might feel safe in these countries, but the ONLY safe place for anyone to be is in the Will of God.
If one is Jewish it is the Will of God for one to be in Israel. He makes it plain as plain can be throughout the Bible, and if His Children will not be persuaded by “fishers” He will in His mercy send “hunters” to deliver the message.
