Shots Fired at Montreal Yeshiva

Front door of Belz Yeshiva Katana riddled with bullet holes.

The Montreal Jewish community was shocked by yet another early morning shooting at a religious institution Tuesday, as antisemitic hate crimes continue to increase.

Four bullets were shot through the front door of Belz Yeshiva Katana at 3:35 a.m. Baruch Hashem no injuries occurred.

The suspect is still at large and the investigation is ongoing.

Surveillance camera footage shows the gunman, but not his vehicle; he had parked at a distance from the building.

Since the Oct. 7 massacre, shootings and arson attacks at Montreal Jewish institutions have become common, including an attack on Congregation Beth Tikvah Ahavat Shalom Nusach Hoari with Molotov cocktails and shots fired at Jewish schools in November. Suspects were arrested in both of the above incidents.

The Belz yeshiva is housed in the same building as a Young Israel shul.
