Muslim Americans have helped raise more than $US91,000 (NZ$ 126,000) to repair vandalised headstones at a Jewish cemetery in St Louis, Missouri.
US Vice President Mike Pence visited the graveyard on Wednesday and told clean-up volunteers, state officials and reporters that there was no place in America for hatred, violence, anti-Semitism or acts of prejudice.
"I must tell you the people of Missouri are inspiring the nation by your love and care of this place, for the Jewish community in Missouri and I want to thank you for that inspiration," Mr Pence said.
About 170 headstones were toppled or damaged at the century-old Chesed Shel Emeth Society cemetery over the weekend, according to cemetery staff.
Some Jewish groups described the vandalism and threats as the latest evidence that anti-Semitic groups have been emboldened by the election of US President Donald Trump.
His campaign last year drew the support of white nationalists and right-wing groups, despite his disavowals of them.
"Muslim Americans stand in solidarity with the Jewish-American community to condemn this horrific act of desecration," the fundraisers said on their website.
