Tree of Life

October 30, 2018

I attended a very moving vigil for Tree of Life at Beth Shalom Congregation tonight. Faith leaders of all faiths from around the county joined together and a candle was lit for each victim of the tragedy as their names were read. 700 people squeezed into the main room and an overflow room. People lined the walls and sat in the aisles. At the end of the vigil the Rabbi told us that there were several hundred more people outside the building. A very moving moment when we exited the building to see a huge crowd outside singing - unified against hate.
