Kosher restaurant in St. Petersburg attacked

JTA: Windows were shattered at St. Petersburg’s only kosher restaurant. The incident took place overnight Sunday when vandals threw stones at the Sholom Jewish restaurant. The chief rabbi of St. Petersburg, Menachem Mendel Pevzner, and chairman of the city’s Jewish religious community, Mark Grubarg, said in a statement that the attack on the restaurant may have been premeditated.
The Moscow Times describes the stones used as "pieces of granite."
