Four young men have been arrested in Rumania in connection with an arson attack against a synagogue in the Moldavian town of Bohush, according to reports that have reached here. The synagogue was burned to the ground last month following the stabbing of the Jewish janitor there. Rumanian police are investigating the double attack. According to reports, the janitor is now out of danger and his condition is improving. He was the only person injured during the attack, which was carried out by masked men. The attacks occurred a day following a visit to the synagogue by the Hasidic Rebbe of Bohush, who now lives in Israel.
