The Russian meteor shower that caused widespread damage Friday smashed the stained glass windows of a synagogue in Siberia Friday morning.

Yechiel Michel Levitin, director of the Or Avner Jewish day school in Chelyabinsk, located 1,000 miles east of Moscow, said a miracle saved one congregant from injury when he left his seat to find out the cause of blasts that were heard seconds before. When he returned, he found a piece of a stained glass window on his seat.


Rabbi Meir Kirsh, director of the Jewish Community Center of Chelyabinsk, added that the synagogue was cleaned up in time for Shabbat prayers Friday night.
