in #CASE you missed it… Jewish people give Muslims key to their synagogue after town's mosque burns down
Jewish people in a small Texas city handed Muslim worshipers the keys to their synagogue after the town's only mosque was destroyed in a fire.
“Everyone knows everybody, I know several members of the mosque, and we felt for them,” said Robert Loeb, the president of Bnai Israel.
“This is sad for everyone in the community and as Jews we especially have to feel for the Muslim community. When a calamity like this happens, we have to stand together,” Loeb said.
Loeb added, sharing the space just made sense: “We have probably 25 to 30 Jewish people in Victoria, and they probably have 100 Muslims. We got a lot of building for a small amount of Jews.”
