The Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh is reciprocating the generosity it received from the Muslim community after a mass shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue last year.
Last October, Muslim groups raised more than $200,000 for the Pittsburgh shooting victims. A gunman stormed into the Tree of Life Synagogue and killed 11 people in what was the deadliest attack ever on Jews in the United States.
The Jewish organization is now working to help the Muslim community after a terror attack on two mosques in New Zealand killed at least 49 people.
In a statement today, the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh said it is accepting donations.
“Unfortunately, we are all too familiar with the devastating effect a mass shooting has on a faith community,” said Meryl Ainsman, chair of the board of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh. “We are filled with grief over this senseless act of hate. May those who were injured heal quickly and fully, and may the memories of the victims forever be a blessing.”
