2 Pairs of Tefillin destroyed as van goes up in flames in Toms River [VIDEO]

As first reported on our Status early this morning, two pairs of Tefillin were destroyed when a van went up in flames in Toms River.

The van, belonging to a Yeshivah in Jackson, was in the Tallymawr neighborhood of Toms River when it became engulfed in flames.

Nobody was injured, but the van was completely destroyed, along with at least two pairs of Tefillin belonging to Bachurim from the Yeshivah.

The cause of the fire is not yet known.
