The Rabbi of a Chicago synagogue catering for the gay community told members of his congregation on Saturday that a smaller congregation that uses their building was one of the targets of plot involving a pair of bombs sent from Yemen.
The synagogue, which has about 100 members, serves lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered Jews and their families.
Rabbi Michael Zedek of Emmanuel Congregation said he was told by a Jewish leader in Chicago that the smaller Or Chadash congregation was one of the targets. The FBI did not confirm that, and both Zedek and Chadash Rabbi Larry Edwards said they had not spoken to law enforcement.
Or Chadash members took the news calmly, Edwards said.
