Chicago Synagogue Cites Web Visits From Egypt

| October 31, 2010

A rabbi at one of the synagogues allegedly targeted by explosive-laden packages from Yemen said that the group's website was visited dozens of times recently by individuals located in Egypt.

Rabbi Michael R. Zedek from Chicago's lakeside Emanuel Congregation also said that he was told by a source that there were actually four bombs targeting Chicago's synagogues instead of the two originally reported.

Emanuel Congregation was allegedly not the specific target of the bomb, but Congregation Or Chadash, a sister synagogue housed within Emanuel was thought to be a target, according to Zedek.
