Members of the Manhattan synagogue Congregation Beit Simchat Torah gathered Friday afternoon to show support for Muslims going into New York University’s Islamic center in the wake of the massacres at two New Zealand mosques.

A tweet from a Muslim activist about their welcome path into the mosque garnered over 90,000 likes.

Jewish communities across the country, from Florida to Wisconsin, also showed up to support their local Mosques.
