From The Jewish Community Relations Council:

“Join us for an interfaith service and solidarity gathering (Adas Israel Congregation
2850 Quebec St. NW
) as we come together to mourn the 11 innocent lives lost, express our outrage and concern, and join in prayer as a community for the speedy recovery of those injured. Hear from community leaders including Washington, DC’s Mayor Muriel Bowser, Governor of Virginia Ralph Northam, and Governor of Maryland Larry Hogan.

We are horrified and heartbroken by the despicable murderous attack at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh’s Squirrel Hill neighborhood that took place during Shabbat services. Words are insufficient to convey our community’s profound pain at the slaughter of innocent people who were worshiping with their community on the holy day of Shabbat, a time that is a weekly reminder to celebrate joy and peace.”

From a press release:

“In light of the despicable murderous attack at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington and The Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Washington (JCRC) are planning a community-wide interfaith service and solidarity gathering with the ADL Washington, AJC Washington, Israeli Embassy, and various other interfaith organizations on Monday, October 29th at 6:30pm at Adas Israel Congregation.

I was hoping for a 2Amys reopening update and stumbled upon this massacre:

“so much wine, but not a drop to drink.. all of these bottles have to be tossed”

On July 9th we learned that 2Amy’s had to close for the “foreseeable future” due to a water pipe burst. Hopefully not too much longer, stay tuned.
