Toronto Muslims Form ‘Rings of Peace’ Around Synagogues

TORONTO – Toronto Muslims formed rings of peace around local synagogues on Friday, and Saturday, November 2-3, as a show of solidarity with the Jewish community following the mass shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.

“It is our faith that keeps us together,” said Osman Khan, a leader at the Imdadul Islamic Centre whose members came out along with members from the International Muslim Organization (IMO), TARIC Islamic Centre and the Fairlawn United Church to surround the Holy Blossom Temple and Beth Tzedec Congregation.

“When one person is hurt in our community, through our moral and religious obligation, we are supposed to help.”

“It gave consolation to us in that difficult time, and now we are doing the same,” added Khan.

“Not because we feel we have to reciprocate, but because we feel a need to be with our brothers and sisters to ease the pain that they feel because we share that pain.”...


Think Win-Win for a better world for all...
