: "Pensacola police are investigating the vandalism of a historic Jewish cemetery that left headstones from the early 1900s overturned and broken.
Members of the Temple Beth-el Congregation, which manages the cemetery on Cervantes Street, between Q and R streets, surveyed the damage Sunday. About 34 burial sites were damaged, causing more than $30,000 in damage, members said.
Martin S. Lewis, president of the congregation, said the vandalism appeared to have happened between 11 p.m. Saturday and 7 a.m. Sunday. A nearby resident monitors the cemetery, Lewis said. Everything was OK at the resident's last check about 11 p.m. Saturday."
