Regarding a donation in reaction to the recent synagogue shooting, our family will be donating additional money to HIAS – the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society.
The Poway shooter in his manifesto said he was a white supremacist and wanted to show support for the Pittsburgh shooter. Both men worried the purity of the white race would be diluted with immigrants.
HIAS was founded for Jews arriving on these shores but now operates to help immigrants in general.
If the root cause of the shootings was a willingness by Americans to tolerate racism and white supremacy, I can think of no better reaction than to support HIAS.
