Members of the Beth Sholom synagogue in Miami Beach join arms with each other on Sunday, October 28, 2018 during a "Time to Grieve", a service to remember victim of the mass shooting at Pittsburgh temple. A grandfather, he attended services every Saturday, according to TribLive. They included two brothers and one married couple. Two other women, 75 and 97, also died.

Meanwhile, the chief medical examiner of the Allegheny County named the dead on Sunday.

"Just because I do something differently than you doesn't make me an evil or bad person", said Edward Feldman. We say no to antisemitism, racism, and Islamophobia. Bowers surrendered and was taken to a hospital where he was listed in fair condition with multiple gunshot wounds. He surrendered to authorities.

Authorities said the suspect, Robert Bowers, 46, of Baldwin, Pa., was charged late Saturday with 29 federal counts. "Never charged them", said Snider, chairman of the congregation's cemetery committee. A law enforcement source told CNN that investigators believe a Gab account that espoused anti-Semitic views belonged to Bowers.

"I think people in my community are scared right now". His family is going to miss him terribly and I am going to miss him.

Mr Jones said Mr Bowers was armed with an assault rifle and three handguns.

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

"If they had some kind of a protection inside the temple maybe it could have been a much more different situation, they didn't", he said when asked if there was any link to U.S. gun laws. "Anti-Semitism "is nearly becoming normalized. We wanted to do this so people could come together and give support and get support and be here and be together".

He said he would visit Pittsburgh, but did not say when.

Rabbi Jonathan Berkun, of Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center, wrote a blog post about his connection to the Pittsburgh synagogue that was attacked.




Officials are not sure why the suspect attacked this particular place of worship.

"People should feel safe to enter our [Jewish Community Centre] and to stand shoulder to shoulder with us". We are here to help you through this horrific episode. She knew both Rose Mallinger and Dan Stein who were murdered in the attack.

"You have to talk to them in a way they understand", he said. "Always a hello, always a hug, always a smile".

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

President Donald Trump ordered flags in all federal buildings to be flown at half-staff in "solemn respect" until Wednesday for the shooting victims.

The campaign, which was kicked off on LaunchGood, debuted Saturday.

They include several people who would have been children during the Holocaust and rise of Nazism.

Al Jazeera's Shihab Rattansi reports from Pittsburgh. "It will take all of us working together to extract the poison of Anti-Semitism from our world".

"We have been assured that we are under no known additional risk".
