This weekend's senseless attacks on the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, which left 11 dead and injured more, have left many in a state of shock and grief.

Tonight, the Jewish Federation of Cleveland is holding a vigil in memory of the victims and the families affected by the hate crime.

The event is open to all and takes place at Mandel Jewish Community Center's Stonehill Auditorium in Beachwood at 5 p.m. Note that overflow parking is at The Temple- Tifereth Israel and Fuchs Mizrachi School parking lots.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the families who are suffering in the Jewish community and throughout the entire City of Pittsburgh," the Federation said in an online release. "May the memories of those who lost their lives be for a blessing."
