At approximately 9:30AM on Sunday, January 29, there was an attempted firebombing at a temple in Bloomfield NJ.

Although there is no information to suggest that any of the houses of worship in Summit are potential targets, Summit Police Department has been in contact with leaders at each temple and synagogue and increased our targeted patrols in these areas. Our agency remains on high alert following the incident in Bloomfield.

Summit Police Department condemns this hateful and violent act of antisemitism directed towards the entire Jewish community. We will continue to work with our partners to denounce and fight antisemitism and to promote safety and security.
