A Jewish cemetery in central Massachusetts was vandalized for the second time in less than two months.

Vandals toppled 19 headstones at the Worcester Hebrew Cemetery. The damage, including two headstones that cracked in half, was discovered earlier in the week. Beer cans also were discovered at the site, according to Fox’s Boston affiliate.

The damage is estimated at about $15,000; the Jewish Federation of Central Massachusetts is collecting funds to fix the damage.

The cemetery is located in a remote wooded area, according to reports.

The cemetery was also vandalized over the Memorial Day weekend, when eight headstones being pushed over.
