Eiffel Tower Goes Dark in Support of Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting Victims

Pope prays for victims of Pittsburgh synagogue shooting

Six others were wounded, including four police officers.

Three congregations were conducting Sabbath services in the synagogue when the attack began just before 10 a.m.in the tree-lined residential neighborhood of Squirrel Hill, about 10 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh and the hub of the city's Jewish community.

A community vigil was held Sunday afternoon for those killed and injured at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh.

Poupko said Jewish people have always been targets of hate crimes, both in Canada and elsewhere, but he said they've never experienced anything like Saturday's mass shooting.

But accounts controlled by real-life humans often mount the most "worrisome and harmful" anti-Semitic attacks, sometimes orchestrated by leaders of neo-Nazi or white nationalist groups, the researchers said.

The nation's latest mass shooting drew condemnation and expressions of sympathy from politicians and religious leaders of all stripes.

It followed a spate of pipe bombs found mailed in recent days to prominent political figures, mostly Democrats including former U.S. president Barack Obama, ahead of November 6 congressional elections.

Daniel, 18, from Los Angeles and a gap year student at the Hartman Institute Hevruta program told the Post he wanted to do something to show his solidarity with the people of Pittsburgh.

Brothers Cecil Rosenthal, 59, and David Rosenthal, 54, were intellectually disabled and lived together near the synagogue.

Myers said he would be willing to sit down with Trump to talk about the shooting, hinting that rhetoric voiced by the USA leadership was connected to the massacre.

Fortunately, the girls were found by the assistant principal before they could carry out the alleged attack. Two Florida middle school students were stopped from carrying out a plotted stabbing spree Tuesday.

Fellow members of the New Light Congregation say Wax was a pillar of the congregation, filling many roles there.

"We shouldn't be trying to find ways to minimize the dangers that occur from irrational behavior".

As the administration continues to face criticism over the president's polarizing rhetoric in the aftermath of the Pittsburgh shooting and a series of attempted bombings against prominent Democrats and critics of Trump last week, Trump used Twitter again on Monday morning to label the media as "the true Enemy of the People". Police say he used three pistols, along with a semiautomatic rifle, in the massacre. Jones added that he did not know why Bowers picked the particular synagogue for his attack.

A tactical team found Bowers on the third floor, where he shot two officers multiple times, the affidavit said. As he was attempting to leave the synagogue, Bowers encountered police and a shootout began.

U.S. authorities said they had filed hate crime charges against the gunman who opened fire at the Tree of Life synagogue on Saturday, killing 11 people.

"When people do this, they should get the death penalty".

Bowers had made many antisemitic posts online, including one early on Saturday. In another, he slammed Trump for doing nothing to stop an "infestation" of the United States by Jews. He expressed hatred of Jews during the rampage and later told police that "I just want to kill Jews" and that "all these Jews need to die", authorities said. "Screw your optics, I'm going in", wrote Bowers, a heavy-set, white male.

Scott Brady, from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, said they would do everything to ensure Bowers was held accountable for his actions. "I'm a citizen, he's my president, he is certainly welcome". "So they do not lock the door, and anybody can just walk in", said Marilyn Honigsberg, administrative assistant for New Light.

Robert Bowers is 46-year-old and is a resident of Pittsburgh.

The assault on the 150-year-old congregation was the deadliest anti-Semitic attack in recent U.S. history.
