PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Philadelphia police are trying to find what whoever broke the windows of a synagogue on two different occasions.

The incidents at Temple Menorah Keneseth Chai occurred Dec. 2 and Jan. 6.

Both times the congregation was getting ready for a service. In December, one rock was thrown that broke one window. In the second incident, several rocks were thrown in a matter of seconds, breaking eight windows. That’s why police believe several people might be involved in the second incident.

Police Lt. Dennis Rosenbaum says there have been no threats directed at the synagogue so police aren’t treating the incidents as a hate crime.

The city’s Glaziers Union donated labor and glass to replace the stained glass windows broken last week.
