Jews Hand Muslims Synagogue Keys When a Texas Mosque Burns Down

• forward.com By Andrea Cantor

Now, in a sense, the synagogue has become a mosque: the Jews of Victoria handed the Muslims the key to the building, so they would a place to worship while rebuilding.

"Everyone knows everybody, I know several members of the mosque, and we felt for them," said Robert Loeb, the president of Bnai Israel, which affiliates with the Reform movement.

On Sunday, the Victoria community held an interfaith event in front of the mosque. Through local donations and a GoFundMe page, the mosque raised over $900,000 in the span of one day to rebuild the mosque. The Jewish Anti-Defamation League's southwestern arm also attended the event.

The causes of the fire are unknown, according to the New York Times.
