Two men were indicted Friday on 30 charges, including attempted murder, for their alleged involvement in a series of fire bombings at several northern New Jersey synagogues.

Akash Dalal, of New Brunswick and Anthony Graziano, of Lodi were arrested last year after authorities say they torched synagogues in Rutherford, Hackensack , Maywood and Paramus, along with a Jewish family center, also in Paramus.  

The attempted murder charges stem from an attack on Temple Beth El in Rutherford last January.

The building houses Congregation Beth El, a school, and a residence where Rabbi Nosson Schuman lives with his family. The rabbi and his family were asleep when several molotov cocktails were thrown into the home.

Nosson, his wife, five children and mother and father-in-law escaped unscathed.
