This was the act of a loner, without institutional support, and was triggered mostly by the HIAS/refugee link to this synagogue.

I don't agree with this assessment. This person was triggered by hate mongering from the president and his right wing media outlets. No one has independently come to the conclusion that we have a migrant invasion of this country. It's the president. No one has independently come to the conclusion that Jews are funding the fabricated invasion. It's the conspiracy theorists who are endorsed by the president when he singles out George Soros and the "globalists" - a dog whistle for Jews.

Pointing out a HIAS/refugee link to this particular synagogue (if true, I hadn't heard) is like saying a woman was raped because she wore nice clothes. It's a perverted thought, IMO.

The jewish community is well integrated and supported
