Brooklyn, NY – Extremely Valuable Antique Seforim Stolen In Early Morning Borough Park Heist

Oy vey!

Someone stole sacred texts worth $233,000 from a Brooklyn synagogue early Sunday morning.

The thief busted down the rear door to the Maase Rokach Congregation on 12th Avenue and 55th Street in Borough Park some time between 3 a.m. and 7:30 a.m., police said.

He made off with nine Torah scrolls worth nearly a quarter-million dollars combined.

Someone at the synagogue noticed they were missing and called police around 4 p.m. on Sunday, cops said.

It appears the thief acted alone, and police are investing.
