The Bellingham Herald

Local leaders in the Jewish community are holding prayer groups and sending letters to support those affected by the shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh on Saturday that killed 11 and wounded six.
Law enforcement officials say Robert D. Bowers allegedly shot into the crowd for several minutes while shouting anti-Semitic slurs inside the Tree of Life Congregation, according to the Associated Press and other media reports this weekend.

Rabbi Avremi Yarmush, at the Rohr Center for Jewish Life in Bellingham, held a public moment of prayer Monday night at the center at 102 Highland Drive.
