Penguins make donations to help shooting victims

The Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh

The Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh

The Seattle area Jewish community gathered on Sunday for vigils to mourn the victims of the mass shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh. "And we find solutions for problems", he told reporters during a press conference.

"Our Jewish community is not the only group you have targeted", the open letter continues on".

Diamond told NPR that Rose "was in her 90s, but she was one of the younger ones among us, I have to tell you, in terms of her spirit. Screw your optics, I'm going in", he wrote. "I don't need thoughts and prayers - I need change".

Brady says multiple search warrants have been issued in the investigation of Bowers, a long-haul trucker who worked as an independent contractor.

The victims - shot down in what authorities said was a 20-minute rampage after the gunman burst into the building during a baby-naming ceremony - ranged in age from 54 to 97, said Karl Williams, the county medical examiner.

Stein, a retired plumbing salesman as well as a husband, father of two and grandfather of one, attended Shabbat services every Saturday morning, his nephew, Steven Halle, told WPXI News on Saturday. She said Rabinowitz died while trying to tend to the wounded, calling him a "voice of reason".

Authorities believed the suspect entered the synagogue, opened fire on the worshippers and was leaving when he encountered a uniformed police officer, Jones said.

Vigils are underway across the nation to remember and honor those killed in Saturday's synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh. He was allegedly yelling about Jews throughout.

Another was Dr. Jerry Rabinowitz, 66, a family physician who initially escaped the attack only to be killed when he returned to render aid to the wounded, according to a Wall Street Journal op-ed column by Pittsburgh carpet salesman Lou Weiss, who knew five of the victims personally. Two of the surviving victims remained in hospital in critical condition. "I wanted to be here with my home community as well and draw strength from them and talk about how we can heal".

News of the attack spread quickly through the surrounding neighborhood.

Authorities and Jewish spokespeople in NY and Washington said security around synagogues had been bolstered.

On Saturday, Hissirch, appearing to hold back tears, said: "It's a very horrific crime scene".

Despite being loaded on offense, the Cardinals have been inefficient in 2019 and rank near the bottom-10 in runs and home runs. Louis has title-winning pedigree and are loaded offensively, but thus far simply haven’t delivered consistent results.

Bowers' virulent anti-Semitic views were evident in prolific online postings. These may include a since-deleted Gab account in which a user with Bowers's name compared Jews to Satan and complained that Trump's "Make America Great Again" movement can not succeed so long as Jews "infest" the country. He faces at least 23 state charges, including homicide, attempted homicide and aggravated assault against police officers.

The Anti-Defamation League called this the deadliest anti-Semitic attack in the United States.

"We are obviously so grateful that it wasn't any more tragic than it already was".

During the shooting, "Bowers made statements regarding genocide, and his desire to kill Jewish people". It is nearly certain to intensify a national debate over bigotry and hatred in American politics - not to mention gun control.

Trump ordered that the US flags at the White House and public buildings be flown at half-staff. "We'll get through this darkest day of Pittsburgh's history by working together".

But Trump has shown no signs of listening to critics - including the ADL - who have for years warned that his rhetoric incites anti-Semites.

Jewish leaders suggested such an attack was not entirely unexpected, noting a sharp spike in anti-Semitic acts amid the harsh political discourse of recent years.

"President Trump, you are not welcome in Pittsburgh until you fully denounce white nationalism", the leader read.

In his defense, Trump's supporters cite his daughter's conversion to Judaism and his support for the Israeli government.

Both groups also praised Canadian law enforcement agencies for their swift response to the attack, while reiterating that there was no direct threat to any Jewish community centre or house of worship in Canada. "After the events on Saturday, they made a point by driving by synagogues, and just being more visible".

"In Pittsburgh, we're pragmatic". We are resilient. We will work together as one.
