New Zealandís synagogues, in a unprecedented move, will be closed for the Sabbath, in solidarity with the countryís Muslims following the mass shootings at the two Christchurch mosques.

For the first time in history synagogues in NZ are closed on Shabbat following the shocking massacre of Muslims in Christchurch. The Jewish Agency and the NZ Jewish Council stand in solidarity with the bereaved families. We are united in fighting violent hatred and racism.



Edit to add:
And from our White House, from the enabler in chief, "My warmest sympathy and best wishes goes out to the people of New Zealand ..."

No condemnation, no repudiation of his anti-Muslim rhetoric. Eff you 'rump.

3. Yes, it is.

Someone I follow retweeted this and it struck me as a very real and functional way of dealing with this act of terrorism. Some humanity in the midst of it all. I found it inspiring and comforting so I shared it here.
