Repair the world with windows and doors with HGI!

You may have heard the terrible news about vandalism against Jewish places of worship in Riverdale, NY. We will use the funds to help for the repairs for the four synagogues that were vandalized. https://abcnews.go.com/US/york-synagogues-vandalized-brazen-attacks-surveillance-video-released/story?id=77316099 


The Holocaust, Genocide, and Interfaith Center at Manhattan College seeks your help in building solidarity and love for our neighbors. www.hgimanhattn.com 

We live in a world where a few people's actions can hurt a whole community but we also know that a few people can transform the world. We need your help in mending the world and showing solidarity.

Let us repair and heal the communities that have been hit with hate, let us give light to their windows and doors.  

As a Muslim, we are taught that all human beings are equal and we must treat one another with dignity. " O people, we created you from the same male and female, and rendered you distinct peoples and tribes that you may recognize one another." (Qur'an 49:13)

As a Lasallian Catholic College we have committed to educate and support our Jewish community.  As our 2020 Lasallian mission states: "We believe that another world is possible, and that education is a fundamental force for building it. Our Lasallian educational perspective aims to build societies where peace, equity, social justice, civic participation, the raising up of common dreams, and respect for freedom and difference are possible." https://manhattan.edu/about/lasallian-catholic.php 

Let us not forget that it is the holy month of Ramadan and it is a duty for us to give and repair what is broken with help from our community. 

With Gratitude! 

Mehnaz M. Afridi, Director of the Holocaust, Genocide, and Interfaith Education Center at Manhattan College
