Gasoline-soaked flaming rags were hurled into a Conservative synagogue in Jerusalem, setting ablaze sections of the main sanctuary and destroying several chairs and prayer books. Nobody was injured in the attack at Kehillat Ya’ar Ramot. Police have not arrested any suspects, but witnesses said they saw people wearing skullcaps running away from the scene. The attack follows two recent unsolved attacks on Conservative synagogues.
