16th Ave’s Temple De Hirsch Sinai will host a community vigil Monday night to honor those who died and speak out against violence following the weekend’s shootings at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life Synagogue.

The community event begins at 7 PM at the 16th Ave house of worship.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims, their families, and to the entire Jewish community of Pittsburgh as they try to understand, mourn, and process this grievous attack,” organizers write.

11 people were gunned down Saturday by an attacker who reportedly said he came to the Pittsburgh synagogue “to kill Jews” capping a week of radical, political and hate motivated terror across the county.

Monday night’s Seattle vigil is organized by Jewish Family Service, the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle, and Temple De Hirsch Sinai.

Attendees are asked not to bring backpacks or large bags. All bags will be checked — please consider leaving yours at home. You can learn more about the vigil here.
