The Tel Aviv municipality on Rabin Square lit up with the American flag, in solidarity with the victims killed in a shooting attack at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA synagogue on October 27, 2018.

The municipal building in Tel Aviv lit up in a display of the American flag on Saturday night to show the city’s solidarity with the victims of the deadly attack on the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania over the Sabbath.

At least 11 people were murdered in cold blood and six others wounded, including two critically, by an anti-Semitic gunman. Four of the injured were police officers.


Robert Bowers, 46, was taken into custody after he was shot and wounded, still ranting anti-Semitic epithets the entire time.

Bowers shouted “All Jews must die,” while firing at his victims during the 20-minute assault. Investigators believe he acted alone.
