MALV stands with Jewish community following mass shooting

To the Editor:

The Muslim Association of Lehigh Valley is deeply shocked at the horrific incident of mass shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.

There is absolutely no justification for such an act in any religion.

We offer our heartfelt condolences to the families of those killed or injured. Our prayers are with all those that are affected by these senseless atrocities.
