Congregants of the Beth Hamidrash Hagadol at Oostenstraat in Antwerp, Belgium were in for a rude shock when they gathered for Saturday morning prayers. Upon arrival, they were dismayed to find that the Ark had been broken into and at least five Torah Scrolls had been stolen. A number of people burst into tears upon the discovery.
Unfortunately, this was not the first time that a theft had occurred in the same shul.
Let's hope that the Scrolls are recovered quickly and that extra security will now be installed to prevent a recurrence.
