Jerusalem's Old City walls were lit up on Sunday evening with Israeli and United States flags and the inscription "We are with you, Pittsburgh."

Jerusalem's municipality and residents sent deep condolences to the families of the victims of the mass shooting at Tree of Life Congregation in Pittsburgh.

The shooting took place on Saturday and 11 people were murdered. They were identified on Sunday morning.


Diaspora Affairs Minister Naftali Bennett departed immediately to Pittsburgh following the shooting incident. He will visit the scene of the attack, meet the local community and participate in the funerals of those killed in the attack.

The attack was the most deadly antisemitic attack in American history.
