Mitzvah #230 - Safeguarding holiness

It is forbidden to destroy anything that has Kedusha (sanctity). This includes damaging - even slightly - buildings and furniture belonging to a synagogue or Yeshiva.

It is also forbidden to erase any of the 7 Hebrew names of Gcd.

Applies to everybody, everywhere, always.

Verse: "Do not do so unto Hashem your Gcd" (Devarim 12:4)
