First Shabbat held since Pittsburgh synagogue shooting

Nevertheless, traditional business models are no longer sustainable and high-quality publications, like ours, are being forced to look for new ways to keep going. We will not allow the hate of a few to drive out the love of the many.

The protest announcement echoed an open letter from a group of local Jewish leaders who told Trump: "You are not welcome in Pittsburgh until you fully denounce white nationalism".

With the mass shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh still fresh in many minds, South Florida's Jewish community joined Shabbat services across the country to remember the 11 people killed.

Dressed formally in ties, jackets and dresses, and carrying babies in tow, these Jews wanted to send a message that they are proud of their faith and will not cower in fear in the wake of what has been described as the deadliest attack on the Jewish community in the history of the United States.

Osai Ojigho , Executive Director of Amnesty International Nigeria, said: "Basic human rights are not subject to whims of the world's leaders".

Hundreds showed up in Plantation on Friday night for a candlelight ceremony at the Ramat Shalom synagogue and a service at Temple Kol Ami Emanu-El. Thousands attended services across the city on Friday and Saturday to stand against the anti-Semitic attack. The survivors of the attack stood on the bima and recited the Gomel blessing, for someone who has lived through a risky experience.

Myers was at Tree of Life as the shooting began and was among the first to call 911 at 9:52 a.m. on that morning after he ran upstairs and found safety in a bathroom.

Robert Bowers, 46, is accused of storming into the Tree of Life synagogue yelling "All Jews must die" and opening fire on members of three congregations holding Sabbath prayer services there. The prayers, songs and poetry were led by former Tree of Life Rabbi Chuck Diamond.

Shabbat is observed from sundown on Friday to sundown on Saturday and is a day of rest, celebration and congregation.

"We have to mourn the victims, and we should do that with our friends and allies in the Jewish community and beyond", said Brian Siegal, director of the AJC in Miami and Broward.

Answering calls from Jewish community leaders to take part in the #ShowUpForShabbat' global initiative following last week's shooting in Pittsburgh, the Mayor of London said: "Today I joined the West London Synagogue at their Shabbat service to show solidarity to the victims of the Pittsburgh shooting last weekend".

"I just feel sick about it", Scharf said.

The top four USA congressional leaders - Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Democratic Senate leader Chuck Schumer, Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi - declined to join Trump in Pittsburgh, two sources familiar with the planning said.

He was the president then of a new, smaller congregation, Or L'Simcha, that found a home in the basement of the building. The words read, "Magnified and Sanctified is God's holy name".

That's part of the reason two Broward Sheriff's deputies and a private security guard were outside, said the synagogue's security chairwoman, Sherry Klawsky.
