A fire set by arsonists destroyed a Philadelphia synagogue. Police said the fire had been set at Beit-Harambam Congregation early Saturday morning by one person who broke in through a back window. The fire destroyed Torahs and prayer books, gutted the synagogue’s interior and left some 300 congregants without a house of worship.
