Houston Mayor Speaks at Candlelight Vigil For Pittsburgh Synagogue Victims

What a moving emotional evening it was in Houston at the JCC with a huge crowd of thousands attending a candlelight vigil in honor of the victims of the horrendous anti-Semitic massacre of 11 Jews at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA.  This was a diverse crowd, representative of the most diverse city in the United States, Houston.  Speakers represented the Jewish, Christian and Muslim religions and all gave wonderful words.
