A man armed with a semiautomatic assault-style rifle stormed the Tree of Life synagogue here Saturday and shot worshipers during Shabbat services, killing 11 and wounding six in the deadliest attack on Jews in the history of the United States.
The mass shooting targeted members of a synagogue that is an anchor of Pittsburgh’s large and close-knit Jewish community, a massacre that authorities immediately labeled a hate crime as they investigated the suspect’s history of anti-Semitic online screeds.
Vigils across the nation have brought people together from all religions and backgrounds. In response to this past weekend’s tragedy in Pittsburgh, the White Plains inter-religious community gathered at Congregation Kol Ami on Sun for a service of prayer, of kaddish, of song, silence and sacred solidarity. All were welcome, so please join us for healing.People came together in solidarity, courage and hope. See part of the program through 360 experience.
