Rabbi Joshua Bolton of the University of Pennsylvania's Hillel center surveys damaged headstones at Mount Carmel Cemetery on February 27, 2017, in Philadelphia.

The incident has yet to be labeled anti-Semitism.

CNN reports the vandalism occurred at the Waad Hakolel Cemetery in Rochester, New York.
