JEWISH PEOPLE GIVE MUSLIMS KEY TO THEIR SYNAGOGUE

 Jewish people in a small Texas city handed Muslim worshippers the keys to their synagogue after the town’s only mosque was destroyed in a fire. The Victoria Islamic Center burned down on Saturday and had previously been burgled — the cause is being investigated by federal officials. But the town’s Muslim population will not be without a place to worship while their building is reconstructed, thanks to their Jewish neighbors. The president of Temple Bnai Israel said, “When a calamity like this happens, we have to stand together. 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.”  One of the mosque’s founders said Jewish community members “walked into my home and gave me a key to the synagogue.” Meanwhile, the Victoria Islamic Center has received over $1 million in donations to rebuild.
