                  Anti-Semitism in Kazakhstan, 2009–2010

                  The Jewish community lives in safety in Kazakhstan, and any anti-Semitic acts are an exception to the norm,

                  Nonetheless, in March 2010, an act of vandalism had been recorded at the central cemetery of Almatry, when several Jewish tombstones had been desecrated. The tombstones had been restored by the government, and the guard of the cemetery had been strengthened.

                  The previous such incident had been back in 2008, when unknown malefactors destroyed part of the mausoleum of Rabbi Levi-Yitzhak at the central cemetery, made their way inside, and desecrated the tomb.
