Burning Corpse Found in Synagogue Parking Lot

Corpse, unrelated to Long Island shul, discovered Friday night

Print Email

At 7 P.M. Friday night—one hour before the beginning of Shabbat services—an abandoned car with a still-burning male corpse was found in the parking lot of Long Island’s B’nai Israel Temple by a synagogue caretaker. However, yesterday police identified the body and all but concluded that its location had nothing to do with the congregation. “Whoever dropped him there took a very big chance, because it was right before services,” Marilyn Gales, B’nai Israel’s president, told Tablet Magazine today. “I would’ve been there in ten minutes.”

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at letters@tabletmag.com. Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.
