Unidentified anti-Semites pelt local Jews with breakfast foods

First, happy last day of Hanukkah!

Second, some jerk-offs are terrorizing members of Atlanta's Jewish community by pelting and pranking them with eggs and bagels.

Rabbi Ilan Feldman of Congregation Beth Jacob on Lavista Road says that several members have reported being attacked with eggs, having bagels left on their lawns and hung from their trees at home, and even that their cars have been broken into and stolen from the synagogue's parking lot on the Sabbath.

As far as the eggings go, people are being targeted as they walk home from the synagogue; mostly, kids are being targeted as they walk to and from nearby Jewish boys-only high school Yeshiva Ohr Yisrael.

At the risk of stereotyping a group of people whose bad behavior likely stems from its own propensity toward stereotyping others, a big "doi" is that one of the eggers reportedly drives a pick-up truck.

DeKalb County Police are investigating.
