Hundreds Attend Chanukah Menorah Lighting Outside Tree of Life Synagogue

0

Hundreds gathered Sunday evening around a towering electric menorah in front of the Tree of Life synagogue where 11 worshipers were killed by a gunman during Shabbos services.

The eight-branched menorah stood in the spot where a temporary memorial had been erected for the victims of the shooting attack, which had been visited by thousands, including President Donald Trump, in the days following the Oct. 27 attack.

The candle for the first night of Hanukkah was lit by a group including police officers, paramedics, the head of the local FBI office and survivors of the massacre, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.
