NEW YORK (JTA) - The suspect in an explosion outside a Southern California Chabad House was arrested after he was recognized while praying in a suburban Cleveland synagogue.

Ron Hirsch, 60, also known as Israel Fisher, was arrested Monday night in a Cleveland Heights synagogue and Jewish center.

Hirsch had visited the synagogue on Sunday night, where he prayed, and then asked the rabbi for food and a place to stay. The rabbi bought him dinner and put him up at a local hotel.

The next day, the rabbi saw Hirsch's photo on a Jewish website.

The April 7 blast at the Santa Monica Chabad House was believed to be deliberately set after initially being classified by police as an industrial accident. The explosion launched a 300pound metal pipe encased in concrete, which smashed through the roof of a home next door to the Chabad House.
