Christians, Muslims to join Jews in service after massacre

October 30, 2018

WEST BLOOMFIELD, Mich. (AP) — Prominent Detroit-area Christian and Muslim clergy are expected to join Jewish leaders for a special service following the weekend massacre at a Pittsburgh synagogue.

Shabbat of Solidarity is scheduled for Saturday morning at Temple Shir Shalom in West Bloomfield. Among those planning to participate are Detroit Archbishop Allen Vigneron and Imam Hassan Qazwini.

Temple Shir Shalom Rabbi Michael Moskowitz said in a statement that support from Christians and Muslims lets Jews “know we are not alone.”

The service is open to the public.

Eleven people were gunned down Saturday at the Tree of Life synagogue, the bloodiest anti-Semitic attack in U.S. history.
