Bucks County Synagogue Zoom Bombed on Shabbat – Jewish Exponent

Temple Judea of Bucks County in Doylestown was victimized by a Zoom bombing during a Shabbat service on Jan. 7.

While the gathering was taking place, the intruder entered and started writing antisemitic, racist and homophobic comments in the chat section. The “unwelcome participant,” as a Temple Judea email described the intruder, also drew “an offensive image on a shared slide containing a healing prayer.”

Synagogue leaders shut down the meeting and reentered to complete the service. But the damage was done.
