Firebombed Montreal School Reopens

With new security measures in place, the United Talmud Torah school in Montreal that was attacked by a firebomb last April, has now reopened for the school year.

The library which suffered the brunt of the attack is continuing to be re-built and is expected to be re-opened at the end of October, said school director Sidney Benudiz. Thousands of books, mostly English fiction, were donated after the incident. The library, which also offered books in French and Hebrew, is still in the process of ordering books in those languages.

Sympathy messages and donations of cash and books poured in from across Canada and around the world following news of the firebombing at the school.
