Footage posted on social media shows a torched synagogue in the central Israeli city of Lod, which has seen unprecedented violence by Arab rioters as well as Jewish revenge attacks.

Mayor Yair Revivo has compared the violence and damage in the city to the Nazi pogroms of Kristallnacht.

The video shows two Torah scrolls being salvaged — unharmed — from the synagogue’s ruins.
