The main access to the B’nai Jacob Synagogue in Middletown, Pennsylvania, locked on Sunday during congregants observed Hanukkah and carried a moment of silence for the martyrs at Monsey’s Netzach Yisroel synagogue.
The assemblage by Middletown will be establishing new security cameras Monday, stated the synagogue’s guardian, HorrisToser.
“So far, they’ve only shot our windows with BB guns, but you never know these days,” Toser stated.
He added, “I’ve never heard of so many anti-Semitic attacks as I hear about these days. My parents talked a lot about it during the (World War II) war. It’s very sad.”
