White Plains inter-religious community vigil

A man armed with a semiautomatic assault-style rifle stormed the Tree of Life synagogue last 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 globe have brought people together from different  religions and backgrounds. In response to this  tragedy the White Plains inter-religious community gathered at Congregation Kol Ami  for a service of prayer, of kaddish, of song, silence and sacred solidarity.
