  • A memorial for victims of the mass shooting that killed 11 people and wounded six at the Tree Of Life Synagogue

"Such a moving tribute to these people and this community after this deadliest attack against Jews in American history", Bolduan continued, her voice breaking several times.

Rose Mallinger, 97, affectionately known to her family as " Bubbie", Yiddish for "grandma", was among the worshippers killed last Saturday when a gunman burst into the Tree of Life synagogue with a semi-automatic rifle and three pistols and opening fire in the midst of Sabbath prayers as he shouted "All Jews must die". Bisno didn't know if she returned to the hospital after the funeral. Prosecutors have said they will seek the death penalty.

Robert Bowers, 46, who had been wounded in a gunfight with police and made his initial court appearance on Monday shackled to a wheelchair, walked into Thursday's proceeding upright and without need of assistance, wearing a red jumpsuit and a bandage on his left arm. He remains jailed without bail.

More good news for the two most seriously injured victims of the Pittsburgh synagogue attack.

The officer was previously identified as Timothy Matson, who suffered multiple gunshot wounds.

Bowers was taken into custody after being wounded in a shootout with police and transferred to a local hospital.


The Jewish community began burying its dead Tuesday as thousands of mourners attended services for a beloved doctor and two brothers.

Three more funerals were held on Wednesday, followed on Thursday by the burial of another three victims - Sylvan Simon, 86, and his wife, Bernice, 84, who had been married for almost 62 years, and Dr. Richard Gottfried, 65, a dentist, who shared a practice with his wife, Peg.

It was the "center of her very active life", her family said in a statement distributed by University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Her family says it was the "center of her very active life".

Though advanced in years, Mallinger always stood during services. They say she retained her intelligence and sharp wit until the end. "She did everything she wanted to do in her life". The court files and press clips showed the man, 27-year-old Randall Bowers, had killed himself while out on bail in a rape case.

Bernice Simon, 84, and 86-year-old Sylvan Simon of Wilkinsburg, Pa., were married at Tree of Life more than six decades ago.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that divorce records suggest Randall Bowers was the synagogue suspect's father.
