Jewish Groups: Ont ., and Muslim Community

jewish groups: During Friday afternoon prayer tomorrow, several Jewish groups are planning to show their solidarity with the city's Muslim community by circling several mosques in a gesture of support for those who grieve, according to CTV. This is very much from the heart, Rabbi Cory Weiss, a rabbi with the Temple Har Zion in Thornhill, Ont., told CTV News Channel on Thursday. Last week, a gunman entered a pair of mosques in Christchurch, N.Z., killing 50 worshippers and injuring dozens more. We're paying respect and we're grieving together. Daryoush Kari, chair of the board of trustees for the Imam Mahdi Mosque in Markham, Ont., said the support is certainly welcome. We understand the pain the community is feeling and we want them to know that we're there with them. ( As reported in the news.
