Probe Fires in Orthodox Congregation

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

The Fire Department is investigating what it calls three “suspicious” fires early this morning at Congregation Chovevei Torah (Orthodox) in Brooklyn, a few blocks from the Lubavitcher center on Eastern Parkway. Prayer books, a prayer shawl and curtains were damaged and a window was broken. The synagogue’s next-door neighbor is Netzach Israel, a rabbinical seminary.
