Profile: Congregation Ahavath Israel Synagogue

Congregation Ahavath Israel Synagogue was a participant or observer in the following events:

Two members of the white supremacist group The Order (see Late September 1983), Bruce Pierce and Richard Kemp, bomb the Congregation Ahavath Israel Synagogue in Boise, Idaho. They use the first bomb Pierce has assembled, and it does little damage. Order leader Robert Jay Mathews is angry over the bombing, not because he disapproves, but because he feels the bomb should have destroyed the building. (McClary 12/6/2006) Pierce will later murder Denver radio host Alan Berg (see June 18, 1984 and After).
