(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Worshippers assembled in the synagogue at Busk, Eastern Galicia, were attacked during Kol Nidre services by a band of hooligans.

The band invaded the synagogue breaking windows and extinguishing the lights. The worshippers resisted the attack, until the police intervened, arresting many of the hooligans.
