Rabbis from the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh spoke out on Sunday night about the deadly shooting that happened there this weekend — with some recalling the frightening moments when bullets started flying. “I began services at 9:45 a.m.,” recounted Rabbi Jeffrey Myers, of Tree of Life.
“The shooting began a few minutes later,” he said, speaking to mourners at Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall.
“I helped pull out the people that I could from the front, but — alas — I had eight people in the back. One fortunately survived.” Most of the worshippers inside the synagogue were sitting in the back, according to Myers.
