3 Fires at Jewish Centers in Massachusetts Were Intentionally Set

By Tess Owen May 17, 2019

Three fires — two at a rabbi’s house and one at a nearby Jewish center — were intentionally set, Massachusetts state officials said Friday.

At around 10 p.m on Thursday night, police and firefighters in Needham, Massachusetts, about 20 miles from Boston, responded to reports of a fire at the Chabad Jewish Center. By the time they arrived, the fire on the side of the building had been extinguished by the caller. Police said they were investigating that fire as a possible hate crime.

About one hour earlier and 30 minutes away in Arlington, police and firefighters had responded to reports of a fire at Rabbi Avi Burkiet’s home, which also functions as a community Chabad center.

The fire, which was on the home’s exterior wood shingles, was small, and firefighters were able to put it out using a hand-held extinguisher. It was the second time in less than a week that firefighters had responded to Burkiet’s home, which he shares with his wife and three children. Days earlier, on Saturday around 11 p.m., police responded to a fire alarm at Buriet’s residence.

“We smelled a lot of smoke,” Burkiet told Boston-25 News after the first fire. “There was a ton of smoke inside the basement going up to the first floor.”
