WE’RE ALL OVER THE LOWER HUDSON VALLEY

Interfaith vigil offers solidarity after Pittsburgh shooting

WHITE PLAINS — It was standing room only as hundreds of people packed into congregation Kol Ami in White Plains for an interfaith vigil as a response of solidarity to the tragedy.

“It’s important that our Muslim friends, our Christian friends, and all different faiths come together and stand against hate,” said Scott Richman, the regional director of American Jewish Committee-Westchester/Fairfield.

Richman said the event, organized by several organizations throughout the area Saturday night, included Kaddish, which is a mourner’s blessing to respect and remember those who passed away.

Security remains high after the mass shooting that killed 11 people at a synagogue in Pittsburgh.
