An interfaith council in Los Angeles established a fund to repair four houses of worship damaged by recent arson attacks. The announcement by the San Fernando Valley Interfaith Council came after an incendiary device was thrown through a stained glass window in the sanctuary of Valley Beth Shalom, one of Los Angeles’ leading Conservative congregations. The attack was the third at area houses of worship within two days, and the fourth in the last two weeks.
