The Islamic Center of Rochester (ICR) stands with their Jewish friends, and all neighbors and brethren, in condemning the despicable repeat bomb threat today at the Jewish Community Center.
The JCC has served as an open and welcoming place where people of all faiths and backgrounds can gather and enjoy each other’s company and friendship. Today they were an open house for those without power and electricity, providing a simple shelter and basics for those who were without. They were forced to evict those already being tried by the recent weather – including women, children and the elderly, due to continued hateful and shameful behavior.
The ICR stands in solidarity with the JCC, its leadership, membership and community at large, and at the ready, to provide whatever support is needed. We will ensure that our shared collective mission of fraternity, humanity and brotherhood is maintained at all costs. We will always repel evil with good.
IF YOU ARE STILL WITHOUT ELECTRICITY AND NEED A WARM PLACE TO STAY, THE ICR IS AVAILABLE TONIGHT (MARCH 11th). PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE HERE BEFORE 8PM (THE DOORS WILL BE LOCKED AFTER ISHA PRAYER). STAY SAFE!
