Permanent Police Protection Given Berlin Synagogue

The local police have decided to establish a permanent guard during the period of services at the Kiel synagogue. This synagogue was recently the scene of an attempted bomb outrage.

The possible danger to which Jewish worshippers will be exposed during the forthcoming Rosh Hashonah and Yom Kippur holidays and the manner in which they can best be given protection, is now being given consideration by local Jewish leaders and it is understood that the government will be expected to take protective measures in the neighborhoods of synagogues throughout the country.
