Man Is Charged with Firebombing a New Jersey Synagogue

posted on February 7, 2023

Tracey Tully of The New York Times reports, “The police arrested a 26-year-old man on Wednesday and charged him with firebombing a large synagogue in Bloomfield, N.J., days after a Molotov cocktail was hurled at the building’s glass door, federal officials said.” The alleged perpetrator, Nicholas Malindretos, was ultimately unsuccessful in burning down the synagogue. The attack is the latest in a string of antisemitic incidents at Jewish houses of worship across the nation and the globe. Philip R. Sellinger, the United States Attorney for New Jersey, said in a statement announcing the arrest, “No one should find that their lives are at risk by exercising their faith.”
