On Saturday, Oct. 27, a man began firing guns in a weekly Shabbat service at The Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill. He killed 11 people and injured several others including two responding officers. The victims are Rose Mallinger, Jerry Rabinowitz, Cecil and David Rosenthal, Daniel Stein, Richard Gottfried, Bernice and Sylvan Simon, Joyce Fienberg, Melvin Wax and Irving Younger. The police took the man into custody and was charged with 29 felony counts which include 11 counts of use of a firearm to commit murder and 11 counts of obstruction of the exercise of religious beliefs resulting in death. Federal prosecutors are planning to seek the death penalty.

Temple Shalom of Northwest Arkansas held a memorial ceremony to honor those who died or were injured in the attack the following Sunday (Oct. 28) at 7 pm. Temple Shalom was filled with community members of all different faiths. The service followed a traditional Jewish memorial including the lighting of candles to honor people who had passed. Eleven candles were lit by people in the audience. The Synagogue had security precautions to make sure everyone attending was safe. Attendees were asked to leave large bags in their cars and police were present.
