I have a feeling I should already know this, but risking embarrassment here.

I never heard of them before today. They were specifically vilified by MAGAshooter on Twitter, so I donated in memory of Tree of Life Synagogue.

MAGAshooter was railing that HIAS listed synagogues which held services for refugees and he tweeted on his Nazi website that “thanks for letting us know who you are” or similar words. I am wondering if that’s why he targeted Tree of Life Synagogue in particular. (Looking for an excuse to kill Jews).

HIAS is a well oiled smooth running machine doing the seemingly impossible.
