On February 21, 2017, Linda Sarsour and Tarek El-Messidi launched a crowdfunding campaign that asked Muslim-Americans to help repair the vandalized Jewish cemetery in St. Louis. The campaign went viral, hitting its $20K goal in just 3 hours and receiving international media attention. It inspired Muslims, Jews, and others worldwide - including JK Rowling and Ellen Degeneres who tweeted about it.
Since the campaign began, we've learned of three other Jewish cemeteries that have been vandalized and also need help: in Philadelphia (PA), Rochester (NY), and Colorado. The campaign will continue collecting funds to help repair the other vandalized cemeteries and any other vandalized Jewish centers.
