Boise’s Jewish community invites you to help honor the Pittsburgh shooting victims

Members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and others gather on 28 October 2018 outside of the Tree of Life Synagogue after a shooting there left 11 people dead in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh on 27 October 2018.

An interfaith candlelight vigil a few blocks away from the site of a mass shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.

The suspect, 46-year-old Robert Bowers, reportedly yelled, "All Jews must die", before carrying out the attack, according to police sources. Federal prosecutors charged him with 29 criminal counts including violence and firearms offences, and violating USA civil rights laws.

"He was somebody that everybody liked, very dry sense of humour and recently had a grandson who loved him", Stein's nephew Steven Halle told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Mr Jones said Mr Bowers was armed with an assault rifle and three handguns. Six other people, including four police officers, were injured during the October 27 incident.

"We've been in practice together for 30 years and friends longer than that", Ciesielka said.

Vanessa Ressler was taken aback Sunday when her 8-year-old daughter Micah asked her a very hard question - "Mommy, could that happen here?"

"For one community that's feeling threatened to reach out to another community that's also feeling threatened... hopefully it will inspire other people around the country and around the world to engage in similar action", he said. "I've heard the conversation over the past year about how we should arm security guards in our schools", Peduto said.


In a pair of tweets, Trump said, "All of America is in mourning over the mass murder of Jewish Americans at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh". David Rosenthal was the youngest at 54. If convicted, the suspect could face the death penalty.

Chicago police did not receive any threats to the city or the vigil, but officers and K9s were deployed to the vigil to ensure a visible presence, officials said.

Mr Bowers had made many anti-Semitic posts online, including one early on Saturday.

Bowers was taken to a hospital where he was listed in fair condition with multiple gunshot wounds.

"You have to talk to them in a way they understand", he said.

Piltz said news of the Pittsburgh shooting came as his community was already on high alert following the recent killing of Eliyahu Moscowitz, an Orthodox Jew who supervised a kosher kitchen in Rogers Park.

Since the time of the attack, several crowdfunding efforts started by Muslim Americans and an Iranian immigrant have raised more than $650,000 (Dh2.4 million) to help support the victims of the shooting.

The Anti-Defamation League and Jewish Council for Public Affairs described Saturday's rampage as the deadliest attack on the Jewish community in the history of the United States.
