A Pittsburgh Jewish group is raising money for the Muslim community in New Zealand after a terror attack that targeted two mosques in Christchurch on Friday and left at least 49 people dead.

The Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh said in a statement on Friday that it will be accepting donations “to help the Muslim community of Christchurch, New Zealand.”

“The Greater Pittsburgh Jewish community was shocked and deeply saddened by the horrific Islamophobic attack in Christchurch, New Zealand, yesterday resulting in the senseless murder of at least 49 people,” the group said in the statement. “We stand in solidarity with the Muslim community in Christchurch, in Pittsburgh, and around the world.”

  1. Idiots. When was last time that muslims supported Jewish victims? In fact, 999 out 1000 terrorist attacks against Jews are perpetrated by muslims.

  2. I am disgusted by the attack and express my condolences to everyone affected.

    Does someone have info about the supposed closure of the (Orthodox?) synagogues? Nonjewish media state that, for the first time in history, synagogues in New Zealand are closed for Shabbat, and are supposedly still closed today, for solidariety with the victims of the shocking massacre. Closing synagogues, unless it was ordered by police authorities that left no choice, sounds quite stupid to me.

    • You express your condolences? Aw…so sweet.
      Did you express your condolences every time a pereh adam murdered one of your own??
      Of course not.

      • This is Anonymous above. Would you suggest I distribute candies like the palestinians do?
        I would still like to know whether it is true that synagogue were closed in new zealand.

  3. Nebach. This is the twisted minset of the Conservative/Reform/Women of the wall, people etc… With no hadracha from daas torah, these misguided people can do the worst.
    Anyway, Ananei ircha kodem. Is every family in Pittsburg that was affected by the massacre, fully taken care of already?
