Conservative synagogue in Israel booby trapped

A Conservative synagogue in central Israel filed a complaint with police after it was booby trapped on Tisha Be’av eve.

The front doors of the Yedid Nefesh synagogue in Modi’in were blocked with potted plants and ropes were tied in front of other synagogue exits in order to trip congregants leaving the building while members were inside for services on Saturday night, the Masorti movement in Israel reported Sunday on its Facebook page.

There are no suspects and the motivation, whether denominational friction or mischief, was unknown.
