Rabbi Group Visits Desecrated Memorial

From Times Wire Reports

Forty rabbis visiting from North America to focus on improving relations between Germans and Jewish Americans joined Andreas Nachama, the leader of Berlin's Jewish community, in prayer at a Holocaust memorial desecrated by vandals.

"As rabbis and Jews, our response to desecration is consecration," said American Rabbi Marc Schneier.

The stone memorial stands at the site of a Berlin synagogue destroyed by Nazis.
