Robert Zimmerman, the past president of the Great Neck B'nai B'rith, told News 12 that the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh hits close to home for many, regardless of their faith. 
"The assault on the Jewish community is an assault on every one of us,” says Zimmerman. “Our society is threatened by the kind of hate mongering, the kind of divisiveness and the kind of vicious acts of violence that we witnessed today." 
Both Nassau and Suffolk police say there is no threat to Long Island, but have stepped up patrols around houses of worship.
President Donald Trump told reporters Saturday that “if there was an armed guard inside the temple, they would have been able to stop him.”
