Chassidim of the Kaliver Rebbe, Rav Menachem Mendel Taub, who passed away in 2019, were shocked to find that his kever on Har Hamenuchos was desecrated. This was the second such incident in a short time, they said.

Tzuriel Krispel, CEO of the Israel Cemeteries Council, said he asked police to upgrade the security in the area. Har Hamenuchos is amid Jewish neighborhoods and less prone to desecration than Har Hazeisim.
