Vigil for synagogue shooting victims

The City Of Pittsburgh And Shooting Victims Told Trump To Stay Away. He Didn’t Listen.

The City Of Pittsburgh And Shooting Victims Told Trump To Stay Away. He Didn’t Listen.

Mallinger's daughter attended her mother's funeral at Rodef Shalom synagogue, accompanied by a nurse, Rabbi Aaron Bisno said.

The paper noted the prayer would be recited Friday evening on the occasion of the first Sabbath since a gunman killed 11 worshippers at the Tree of Life synagogue Saturday.

Bowers also has been charged in state court with 11 counts of criminal homicide and 13 counts of ethnic intimidation, though authorities have said prosecution of the federal case will take precedence. Prosecutors say that once inside, Bowers, who had been vocal about his anti-Semitic beliefs on social media, said he was there to "kill Jews". He remains jailed without bail.

He said many Jewish Cambridge students had been "shaken up" by news of the attack.

In a statement issued earlier this week, Mallinger's family said that for the nonagenarian, Tree of Life was the "center of her very active life".

Mallinger's daughter was injured in the attack and remained hospitalised in stable condition. The wounded congregant is Daniel Leger, a nurse and hospital chaplain.

The city's Jewish community had begun burying its dead Tuesday as thousands of mourners attended services for a beloved family doctor and two brothers. The funerals have continued each day since.




Three more funerals were held on Wednesday, followed on Thursday by the burial of another three victims - Sylvan Simon, 86, and his wife, Bernice, 84, who had been married for almost 62 years, and Dr. Richard Gottfried, 65, a dentist, who shared a practice with his wife, Peg.

The American Jewish Committee (AJC) has been pushing the hashtag #ShowUpForShabbat across the globe, calling on elected officials and religious and civic leaders - both Jewish and non-Jewish - to do exactly as the tag says.

"She retained her sharp wit, humor and intelligence until the very last day", the family statement said.

Speaking to Varsity before the vigil, Kissin expressed her hope that the "collective memory of Jews always saying those words" would be a "powerful illustration of [how] we're still here, we're still standing, united against all this anti-semitism, this racism, and we just want to build, and to grow, and to help combat racism in all its forms".

A 61-year-old woman also remains hospitalized.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that divorce records suggest Randall Bowers was the synagogue suspect's father.
