Police told the New York Daily News that the fire was the third incident believed to be anti-Semitic in three days in the neighborhood.
"I don't know why they would do that. Maybe they were just bored, or maybe it really was about hate. Either way they blew up a bus. They need help," Chani Klein, a parent at the academy, told the Daily News.
