Hundreds of Omaha metro area residents gathered at the Beth El Synagogue Monday evening to remember the 11 killed in Saturday’s deadly shooting in Pittsburgh. Those attending came from different religions but were there for the same purpose, to mourn the lives of those killed and to stand together.
Many people sat on the floor or stood throughout the vigil as seating space was quickly filled.
While the masses gathered inside the synagogue, law enforcement were at the doors making sure everyone was safe. Congressman Don Bacon and his Democratic challenger Kara Eastman attended the event.
