Vigil Planned For Pittsburgh Victims

On Thursday, November 1, a vigil will be held for the 11 victims who were killed in a synagogue in Pittsburgh over the weekend.

The vigil will be held at the Jewish Center of the Hamptons on Woods Lane in East Hampton from 7 to 8 PM. “Let the world know that we stand together for hope and stand united against the darkness of prejudice and anti-Semitism,” said a spokesperson for JCOH.

“When tragedies like this happen, we shouldn’t forget the power of community to comfort, and the power of prayer to heal.” The Jewish Center of the Hamptons is coming together with Temple Adas Israel, the Conservative Synagogue of the Hamptons, as well as other local faith communities to hold a vigil for those slain at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.

For those who cannot join on November 1, Kaddish will be recited at Shabbat services Friday at 6 PM and again on Saturday at 10 AM.
