A pig's head was placed
on the threshold of a construction site slated for a three-story Chabad
synagogue in Sevastopol, Ukraine. Members of the local Jewish community
said that many residents have opposed construction of the neighborhood
synagogue, claiming that the site was situated on remnants of a mass
grave of non-Jewish Ukrainians
who died in World War II.
On Wednesday, the Zarusskiy.org news website reported that the head of the pig had been discovered by members of the Jewish
community on Monday. The three floor building on which construction
began in 2012 will be able to accommodate 400 worshipers. It is
scheduled to open in 2014.
