  • Flowers sit at a makeshift memorial at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh Sunday Oct. 28 2018. Robert Bowers the suspect in Saturday's mass shooting at the synagogue expressed hatred of Jews during the rampage and told officers afterward

Just one day after the mass shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, two Muslim groups have raised tens of thousands of dollars for the victims and their families.

One of the Pittsburgh synagogue victims had just become a grandfather - and had been loving his new role, a grieving relative told The Post on Sunday.

In addition to the 11 mostly elderly victims who were killed, six people, including four police officers, were wounded before the suspect was arrested.

The oldest victim was identified as 97-year-old Rose Malinger of Squirrel Hill, the heavily Jewish neighbourhood in which the synagogue is located.

Bowers faces 29 federal counts, including weapons offenses and hate crimes.

Survivors from Saturday's synagogue massacre in Pittsburgh have told how one of three rabbis there saved their life by pushing them into a dark storage closet when they heard the first shots rang out.

Jones said authorities do not yet know where and how Bowers obtained the AR-15 and three Glock.357 handguns used in the attack.

"This is a coward and he is not a man by any definition that we use in the Department of Defense", Mattis said.

The day after the attack on the Tree of Life Synagogue, the congregation of Temple Emanu-El in Dallas was determined to go on with its annual fall festival. "It's incredible to see the amount of people who came out because I was feeling really alone and completely separated from the community that gave me my Jewish identity, and here I feel so uplifted and supported by completely random strangers I met on the Internet".

"There's a tight-knit community that has supported the Rabinowitz family and we will continue to support the Rabinowitz family", he said. David Rosenthal was the youngest at 54.

Earlier, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said federal prosecutors could seek the death penalty. "Screw your optics, I'm going in".

Authorities have released the names of the victims from yesterday's attack on a synagogue in the historic neighborhood of Squirrel Hill in Pittsburgh, PA as well other details about the tragedy which authorities say could take "weeks" to process and investigate. He did not have a criminal record and was not known to police, law enforcement officials said on Saturday.

Bowers was taken to a hospital where he was listed in fair condition with multiple gunshot wounds. The groups have partnered with the Islamic Center of Pittsburgh in order to disburse the funds once the fundraiser ends.

The Anti-Defamation League called this the deadliest anti-Semitic attack in the United States. "I can't even imagine (Cecil) thinking ill of anyone", she said.

"If they had some kind of a protection inside the temple maybe it could have been a much more different situation, they didn't", he said when asked if there was any link to USA gun laws.
