PITTSBURGH, PA (AP)– Hundreds of mourners dressed mostly in black are lined up, ringing the perimeter of Pittsburgh’s city’s oldest and largest synagogue, Rodef Shalom, to pay respect for two intellectually disabled brothers who were gunned down on Saturday.
A funeral was set to begin at noon Tuesday for Cecil and David Rosenthal, who were both in their 50s.
They were among 11 people who died in the massacre inside the Tree of Life Synagogue.
The mourners include Dr. Abe Friedman, who said the Rosenthal family is well known in Pittsburgh for their philanthropy and kindness. Friedman would sit in the back row of Tree of Life each week along with the brothers, and would have been killed along with them had he not run late Saturday.
Services for Dr. Jerry Rabinowitz were also being held Tuesday.
