In Jerusalem, fire and rescue personnel were summoned to a fire in a building late Monday night on Rehov HaKablan.
After searching the building, the firefighters were horrified to discover a Torah scroll that had been torched.
It’s not clear who made the call to firefighters, and the Torah does not appear to have been found in a synagogue, raising further questions.
The incident is under investigation, officials said.
This is a developing story.
