Man charged after rock thrown through downtown Toronto synagogue, police say

Toronto police officers say a man has been charged as part of a suspected hate-motivated mischief investigation after a rock was thrown into a downtown synagogue at the beginning of June.

Officers said in a statement the incident happened at a synagogue near Spadina Avenue and Dundas Street West at around 5:15 a.m. on June 1.

Investigators alleged the man threw the rock through a front window and caused it to break.

The statement said the suspect, 33-year-old Toronto resident Jonathan Szeftel, was arrested on Monday and charged with mischief to a religious property and failure to comply with a probation order.

He appeared in a downtown court on Tuesday. The allegations haven’t been proven in court.
