3 LA shuls closed


Three Los Angeles synagogue locations were temporarily closed after receiving bomb threats on Shabbat. Police used bomb-sniffing dogs to check the buildings for explosives and none were found.

The bomb threats come three months after an Israeli-American Jewish teenager was arrested at his home in Ashkelon in southern Israel and charged with makings hundreds of threats to Jewish institutions around the world, including more than 160 to JCCs, synagogues and Jewish organizations in the United States.
