The Netherlands – Dutch police advised a municipality to forbid the public display of a sukkah out of concerns that it would be a target for vandalism, a Jewish resident said.
Fabrice Schomberg applied last month for a permit to erect a sukkah outside his home in the predominantly Muslim neighborhood of Schilderswijk in The Hague.
