Tree of Life Synagogue Vigil

There are two opportunities to honor and remember the eleven people who lost their lives in the Tree of Life Synagogue shooting that took place on Saturday, Oct 27, 2018.

  1. A community vigil is scheduled at the Grand Valley State University Clock Tower on Monday, October 29, 7:15pm - 8:30pm hosted by Hillel of GVSU. The Cook Carillon Clock Tower is located on campus at 10710 N. Campus Drive, Allendale, MI 49401.

  2. Temple Emanuel’s Friday night service on November 2 at 6:15pm is dedicated to the memory of those who lost their lives. The temple is located at 1715 East Fulton, Grand Rapids, MI 49503.

Whether we mourn the loss of this faith community’s beloved people with our physical presence at one of the public services, or in our hearts, we as St. John’s United Church of Christ members and friends will share peace, we will be faith in action, we will stand against violence and bigotry, and we will say their names with respect as we hold them in faithful prayer: Joyce Fienberg (75), Richard Gotfried (65), Rose Mallinger (97), Jerry Rabinowitz (66), Cecil Rosenthal (59), David Rosenthal (54), Bernice Simon (84), Sylvan Simon (86), Daniel Stein (71), Melvin Wax (88), Irving Younger (69).
