A synagogue that was attacked during riots in Ukraine is in need of repair after what is being called “minor damage.”

Firebombs struck the Giymat Rosa Synagogue in Zaporizhia, which sits 250 miles from Kiev, where much of the tensions took place in the violent anti-government protests across the country.


The shul, which opened in 2012, posted images of the damage to its website, after a Molotov cocktail was thrown into the synagogue.

The culprits are unknown, but police are currently searching for suspects.

Jewish communities in Ukraine have strengthened security in recent days with Jewish groups around the world offering aid and assistance. Ukraine is home to about 400,000 Jewish residents.
