The Jewish community in Utah is responding to the events that occured in Pittsburg.

The Chabad community center is holding a vigil tonight in honor of the 11 people who died.

The attack occurred at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. A shooter entered during a worship service with an automatic rifle and three handguns.

Rabbi Zippel, the man in charge of the vigil, told us how the community is being affected. “The biggest tribute we can extend to the memories of the people who’s lives were so brutally taken away this past Saturday is to commit to enhance our lives and work extra hard on restoring relationships.”

The tragedy has left the Jewish community focused on the victims’ families and all those impacted by the attack.

“The only way to fight evil and darkness is with light and with love. We are expecting an overwhelming outpouring of love and support tonight.”

The vigil is open to the public and will be held at 6 p.m. For more information visit
