Boise’s Jewish community invites you to help honor the Pittsburgh shooting victims

The oldest victim was Rose Mallinger, 97, of Squirrel Hill.

Pope Francis is grieving with Pittsburgh's Jewish community following the massacre at a synagogue, denouncing the "inhuman act of violence" and praying for an end to the "flames of hatred" that fueled it. The county medical examiner described finding ammunition "casings everywhere". The suspected shooter has been charged on 29 federal counts.

The murder charges are all punishable by death.

Saturday's shooting at the Tree of Life Congregation is considered the deadliest attack on the community in the United States. "It's real once you hear the names".

But Aaron, who was in town for a bat mitzvah celebration, had no way of knowing that marked the last time she would see Rosenthal, one of 11 people killed in the historic synagogue when a gunman opened fire during Saturday morning services. At least six other people were wounded, including four police officers who dashed to the scene, authorities said. Three remain in the hospital.

"We've been in practice together for 30 years and friends longer than that", Ciesielka said.

Authorities searched Bowers' apartment Saturday and his vehicle Sunday, Jones said, but he would not comment on what was found. Bowers is scheduled to appear before a federal judge Monday afternoon.

Social media postings targeting Jews that are believed to have come from Bowers are a focus of the investigation, a federal law enforcement official said.

The victims range in age from 54 to 97.

Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton ordered flags in the state to be flown at half-staff in honor of the victims. They could not immediately be reached. "We will get through this darkest day of Pittsburgh history by working together".




"We're dealing with irrational behavior; there is no way that you can rationalize a person walking into a synagogue during services and taking the lives of 11 people". "We will not try to rationalise irrational behaviour, we will not find ways to lessen it", he said.

"What was going through my mind was people who were going to walk, or children who run in front of their parents, behind their parents, people in wheelchairs, in strollers", he said.

Joyce Fienberg, 75, of the Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh.

Richard Gottfried was a dentist who served patients who did not have insurance or were underinsured, according to the New York Times.

The area around Squirrel Hill will remain closed for up to one week, said Endell Hissrich, Pittsburgh's public safety director.

Jerry Rabinowitz, 66, of Edgewood Borough, Pa.

David and Cecil Rosenthal, aged 54 and 59 respectively, were identified as the brothers who were killed.

Sylvan Simon, 86, (husband of Bernice), of Wilkinsburg.

Aaron was attending the bat mitzvah at congregation Dor Chadash, a reconstructionist congregation that is led by members and does not have a rabbi.

Melvin Wax, 88, was shot and killed when he left the closet and went back into the room where he had been praying.
