A small plane crashed into the side of a synagogue, killing the pilot, witnesses said. About a dozen people were inside Congregation Children of Israel's Walton Way Temple cooking a meal on Wednesday night, the second day of Hanukkah, but no one was injured, Rabbi Robert Klensin said. "It's very sad for the pilot who was killed and his family, but it is also a blessing no one else was hurt," said Klensin, who was not at the temple during the crash. The pilot apparently tried to land in a nearby school parking lot - the only spot around not covered with homes and trees, witnesses reported.
