Arsonists attacked three synagogues early Friday, gutting a library and leaving leaflets at two of the houses of worship blaming Jews for the war in Kosovo. The worst of the damage was at 150-year-old Congregation B'nai Israel, which calls itself the oldest synagogue in the West. The Reform synagogue's library housing tapes and other materials on Jewish history was blackened, its contents destroyed. The early morning fires caused nearly $1 million in damage.
