In light of Saturday's shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue that killed 11 people, multiple groups throughout D.C. are holding vigils Sunday and Monday to mourn one of the deadliest attacks on Jews in U.S. history.
The 20 minute-attack during a baby-naming ceremony at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill also wounded six others, including four police officers. The suspect, Robert Bowers — believed to have spewed anti-Semitic slurs and rhetoric on social media — was charged with 29 federal counts, including hate crimes and weapons offenses.
Multifaith groups are planning gatherings to mourn those lost and support survivors and their families.
Host: The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington, The Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Washington (JCRC) and various other Jewish organizations and interfaith partners invite the community.
