Moscow Shul
Is Attacked

Moscow (JTA) — After nearly a
year of relative calm, Moscow's
largest synagogue was the target
of a second attack in less than a
week.
Seven shots from a BB gun
were fired at Moscow's Choral
Synagogue at about 11 p.m. on
Oct. 12, coming four days after
the Oct. 9 attempted bombing of
the shul.
Four of the shots pierced the
glass windows of the synagogue's
vestibule.
In the Oct. 9 attack, a Molotov
cocktail was hurled into the syn-
agogue's entranceway but failed
to explode. Synagogue staff mem-
bers subsequently called the po-
lice, and a bomb squad arrived to
retrieve the unexploded Molotov
cocktail.
Police have so far failed to lo-
cate anyone responsible for either
of the attacks.
The dates of the two incidents .
correspond roughly with the be-
ginning and end of a recent con-
ference that brought 80 rabbis to

Synagogue staff
members called
the police.

Moscow from all over the world
to discusS the future of Jewish life
in the former Soviet Union.
"There might be some connec-
tion," said Rabbi Pinchas Gold-
schmidt, chief rabbi of Moscow
and spiritual leader of the Choral
Synagogue.
"I also know the police were
very concerned about the Octo-
ber memorial days (commemo-
rating last year's fight for control
of the Russian government, when
Russian tanks fired on the Par-
liament). So it might be connect-
ed to that, or to the upheaval in
the financial markets. Anything
is possible," said Rabbi Gold-
schmidt.
He said these attacks were the
first since last November.

Visit Shows
Israeli Control

Jerusalem (JTA) — Members of
the Knesset's Interior Commit-
tee visited the Temple Mount to
demonstrate Israel's firm control
over eastern Jerusalem.
The trip was organized, said
committee Chairman Yehoshua
Matza of Likud, in response to a
threat issued by Palestinian lead-
ers to close the gates of the Tem-
ple Mount if Jerusalem Mayor
Ehud Olmert accompanied Pres-
ident Clinton on a planned visit
to Jewish, Christian and Muslim
holy sites in the Old City.
