A Montreal police probe into a series of attacks on the city’s Jewish community extended into the US on Monday as detectives inquired about a fire that destroyed the Neturei Karta Shul in Monsey (as reported HERE on YW). Montreal detectives sought to determine whether there were any connections between the Montreal attacks and the fire in Monsey, which destroyed the U.S. headquarters Neturei Karta.

Those attacks in Montreal include firebombings and threats against the city’s Jewish community. Federal U.S. investigators joined local police in probing the fire in Monsey, which is about 50 kilometres north of New York City. “Terrorism has been ruled out, but the investigation remains active,” said Detective Lt. Louis Falco of Rockland County Sheriff’s Bureau of Investigation.
