Candle and Memorial Floral Arrangement

A Madison Vigil for Grief and Interfaith Solidarity mourning the victims of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting will take place at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 28 at the First Unitarian Society, 900 University Bay Drive in the Atrium Auditorium.

"As we mourn the 11 people killed in the mass shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, we come together to offer support to one another and to stand against hate, white supremacy, and religious bigotry," said Rabbi Jonathan Biatch from Temple Beth El. "We say no to antisemitism, racism, and Islamophobia. We say yes to love, compassion, and welcome. May the memories of all those killed be for a blessing. We encourage people of all faith orientations to attend to offer solidarity with the victims of violence and hatred."

The vigil is sponsored by Beth Israel Center, Congregation Shaarei Shamayim, Temple Beth El, UW Hillel, Wisconsin Faith Voices for Justice and the Jewish Federation of Madison.
