A fire was started in the Lev Shlomo yeshiva building in Baltimore, Maryland last night. Community representatives believe the fire was started by a "mentally unstable" member of the community who had been attempting to enter the building.

"He is not a participant in the Lev Shlomo program, and Lev Shlomo has been working in recent days with law enforcement and others to address this situation," said a statement by Chananya Backer Memorial Institute Director Aryeh Zigdon.
