Nearly 200 headstones were damaged or destroyed at the Chesed Shel Emeth Society, a Jewish cemetery in St. Louis, MO in the past few days. Surveillance footage on Monday showed rows of headstones fallen to the ground of the historic cemetery.

This followed a series of threats to Jewish Community Centers in suburban St. Louis and near Kansas City.

In response to this senseless act Muslims across the nation have raised thousands of dollars to repair the damage and to practically express their solidarity with the families that were impacted.

Muslim Congress denounces such acts of hate and vandalism and expresses its sympathy with the Jewish community of University City. We also applaud the assistance offered by all Muslims who have contributed to the repair of the cemetery.
