The soot has been washed away but evidence from the May attack on a Jacksonville mosque is still visible. Now, a group of a different faith is offering to repair it.

"I simply called Ash (Shaikh) to find out if there was anything to do to help out," said Ken Organes, who represents the Jacksonville Jewish Center Men's Club.

Worshipers at the Islamic Center of Northeast Florida on St. Johns Bluff Road heard a loud noise outside the mosque shortly before evening prayers the night of May 10.
