Police Officers: Joyce Fienberg and Uja Federation

police officers: The Toronto event marks the latest in a series of commemorations that have sprung up across Canada since Saturday morning, when an armed gunman stormed the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh and killed 11 congregants, according to CTV. Six other people were injured in the attack, including four responding police officers. The vigil, organized by the UJA Federation of Greater Toronto, drew in thousands of people of all faiths beginning at 7 p.m. Ultimately the target was all Jews, period, and everybody in this community knows it, and in communities across Canada and throughout the world, Steve Shulman of the UJA said. A number of people made speeches on Monday night, including a relative of Joyce Fienberg, one of the 11 Jewish-Americans killed. The way that the Jewish community reacts to anti-Semitism is to come together because coming together means strength, and coming together as well with people from other faith groups and other backgrounds in this great multicultural city and country adds to that strength.
