Pennsylvania Synagogue Targeted During Jewish New Year

Responding to a generalized regional bomb threat, the Honesdale Borough Police checked the synagogue of Congregation Beth Israel on September 18th, the third full day of Rosh Hashanah, and found nothing.

Using bomb sniffing dogs, police were able to rule out immediate danger, which came as a relief to Rabbi Elliott Kleinman of Beth Israel, who reported the threat.

Mayor Derek Williams shared his support for the scary situation, saying, “Our hearts go out to Congregation Beth Israel and any faith community that has to deal with what they had to deal with today. A bomb threat, a national piece of nonsense.”
