Dozens crammed into the Bethel AME Church in Wilmington yesterday afternoon to sing, pray and show solidarity against anti-Semitic attacks.

On Monday there was a bomb threat against the Seigel Jewish Community Center at Talleyville as well as two others in January.

And there was the attack on the Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia.  

Imam Abdul Hadi Shehata told the gathering that the group was coming together as a show of unity in the face of those who would divide the communities.

The meeting comes in the wake of the killing of two Indian men in Kansas.

Rabbi Michael Beals, the acting director of the Delaware Council of Faith-Based Partnerships, said that his Muslim brothers and sisters should not shy away from asking for help.
