AJC starts memorial fund for museum guard


WASHINGTON (JTA) — The American Jewish Committee set up a memorial fund to benefit the family of the security guard killed at Washington’s Holocaust museum.

The organization said it soon will have a place on its Web site to contribute to the fund in memory of Stephen Johns, who was slain June 10 by an 88-year-old white supremacist at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.

Those who want to donate immediately should send checks made out to the American Jewish Committee, with "Holocaust Museum Memorial Fund" in the memo line, to American Jewish Committee, Washington Chapter, c/o Melanie Maron, 1156 15th Street, NW, Suite 120, Washington DC 20005.

All of the contributions will go to the Johns family, the AJC said.
