Berlin – Damage was discovered at a synagogue in Berlin-Schoeneberg on Saturday.
The mezuzah – a wooden box with a document that is considered a talisman – was opened at the door of the rabbi who lives in the building and the document was stolen, the police said.
A security officer from the Jewish community in Berlin therefore called the police early in the morning at around 7 a.m.
The officials had already been alerted once during the night because a passer-by noticed a destroyed doorbell and rubbish in front of the front door of the house on Passauer Strasse around 3 a.m. Police officers later found the Mezuzah in the rubbish, it was said.
State security is investigating property damage and theft.
