NJ Synagogue Attacked by Molotov Cocktail Sunday


Police are searching for an unknown man wearing a ski mask who threw a lit Molotov cocktail at Temple Ner Tamid in Bloomfield (Essex County).

The incident took place at 3:20 AM Sunday. The cocktail hit the front door, but thankfully no damage was reported. The safety systems the Congregation had had a significant impact on thwarting the arson.

The Shul is currently working with local officials, local and state police, and the FBI to investigate and help speed the catching of the antisemite.

“We have and will continue to do everything in our power to keep our community safe. Everything worked as it should. Our cameras recorded the incident, and our shatter-resistant doors were held. But what I cannot do, is convince our community not to grow despondent. There is hate everywhere, and hate wins when we let it penetrate,” Rabbi Marc Katz said.
