A RELIGION, NOT A RACE:

Pittsburgh Jews raise £150K for Christchurch Muslim communities after massacre (JEWISH NEWS, March 18, 2019)

He said the funds "will go to help the Muslim community of New Zealand to recover," adding: "We were definitely motivated in part by the enormous support that the Pittsburgh Muslim community gave to Jewish Pittsburgh after the October attack.

"Our relationships with the Muslim community in Pittsburgh have overall been excellent, and those relationships have only gotten stronger in the wake of the synagogue attack last year.

Earlier Meryl Ainsman, who chairs the board of the Jewish Federation, said: "We are all too familiar with the devastating effect a mass shooting has on a faith community. We are filled with grief over this senseless act of hate."
