    A Massachusetts man is scheduled to face a judge on Monday in connection with vandalizing a property in Sharon that belongs to the Jewish community.

    Yerachmiel Taube, 28, of Sharon, was arrested Saturday and was charged with malicious destruction of property, destruction to a religious organization, interference with civil rights, and disorderly conduct.

    On Friday, Sharon Police posted to their Facebook page that the Sharon Eruv had been vandalized repeatedly over the past few weeks. The vandalism on the Massapoag trail between Ames Street and Billing Street, and Billings Street and Robs Lane, included the destruction of several wooden poles and string.

    An Eruv is a series of wooden poles and string that mark the boundary of the Jewish community for the purpose of carrying items on the Sabbath. More than 40 volunteers work to maintain Sharon's Eruv on a weekly basis.
