The synagogue in the city of Yosasel, Transylvania, was destroyed Monday night by dynamite. The dynamite was placed by the plotters in the place where the holy scrolls are usually kept, and the explosion occurred two hours after evening services had been held.
It was only by a miracle that several hundred worshippers were saved from certain death, as it is evident that the explosion was intended to occur during the services.
