Synagogues installing extra security following attacks
Synagogues are adding extra security and installing new cameras after a third attack at a Bergen County synagogue has many in the Jewish community on edge.
The attacks on synagogues in the county began on Dec. 10 when anti-Semitic graffiti was spray painted at Temple Beth Israel in Maywood. Ten days later, swastikas were found on Temple Beth El in Hackensack. Police are now investigating arson at Congregation K'Hal Adath Jeshuran in Paramus.
The Bergen County prosecutor says it doesn't appear the Paramus attack is connected to the other two. But officials are not ruling out copycats, especially given the recent violence at houses of worship in New York.
