BOSTON — Fear, anger and a determination to fight anti-Semitism.
Those were some of the feelings expressed in the Jewish community around Boston, one day after a gunman murdered 11 people inside a Pittsburgh synagogue.
Eleven names were remembered Sunday on Boston Common by hundreds. The victims of the massacre at the tree of life synagogue in Pittsburgh.
It was billed as a vigil but at times, had the flavor of a rally. Speakers occasionally traded in idle sadness for political jabs.
“We know that we cannot make America great again by making America hate again,” U.S. Sen. Edward Markey (D-MA) said.
There were also calls for action, but behind it all were the names of three women and eight men. Names that now live on a national list that won't stop growing.
