US Muslim groups raise tens of thousands for synagogue victims

Pittsburgh mayor opposes Trump's call to arm synagogues

Officials said at a news conference Sunday that the victims ranged in age from 54 to 97 and included brothers and a husband and wife.

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.

Bowers faces 29 federal counts, including weapons offenses and hate crimes.

Dina Winer from The Meeting Place Dialogue Group told The Jerusalem Post, "Whenever there's a terrorist attack in Israel, we meet in Zion Square and it's especially sad for us that we have to do this for an attack that took place in America". Bowers is being treated for gunshot wounds and is due in court Monday.

Daniel Stein, 71, of Squirrel Hill was described as a family man who recently became a grandfather. "This time it was us, but we can't tolerate hate in our country here, or anywhere".

"The news of the casualties was not released until early evening and so the family did not know what was happening", he said.

He said we are dealing with irrational behavior and that there's no way to rationalize a person walking into a synagogue during services and killing 11 people. He did not have a criminal record and was not known to police, law enforcement officials said on Saturday.

"He was somebody that everybody liked, very dry sense of humour and recently had a grandson who loved him", Stein's nephew Steven Halle told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

In January 1996, Israel and Oman signed an agreement on the reciprocal opening of trade representative offices. That office was shut four years later, after the start of the Second Intifada in October 2000.

The other victims included 75-year-old Joyce Fienberg of Oakland, 65-year-old Richard Gottfried of Ross Township, 66-year-old Jerry Rabinowitz of Edgewood and 69-year-old Irving Younger of Mt. Washington.

Jewish leaders across South Florida on Sunday preached peace and kindness a day after a gunman killed 11 people at a synagogue in Pittsburgh.

Authorities believed the suspect entered the synagogue, murdered the worshippers and was leaving when he encountered a uniformed police officer, Jones said.

The suspect, a Pittsburgh resident, was shot and in fair condition at a hospital, authorities said.

News of the attack spread quickly through the surrounding neighborhood.

"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. Bowers' virulent anti-Semitic views were evident in prolific online postings.

"I think people in my community are scared right now".

The Anti-Defamation League and Jewish Council for Public Affairs described it as the deadliest attack on the Jewish community in the history of the United States.
