Members of the Jewish community paid respects to the victims of the Halle shooting attack, at a vigil outside the synagogue in the eastern German city on Thursday.
The mourners were seen laying candles and flowers, as well as holding a moment of silence for the victims of Wednesday's attack.
Rabbi Jeremy Borowitz said, «Scary and terrifying and we have to live our lives. And I haven't made full... Еще sense of all of those things, some of which contradict each other.»
«I want to encourage people to live their loves with as much love and joy as possible, because I think it's the only answer to hatred,» he added.
Earlier on Wednesday, two people were killed after a man opened fire near a synagogue where the Jewish community was observing the holiday of Yom Kippur, the holiest day in the Jewish calendar. According to reports, one woman was shot dead outside the synagogue near a Jewish cemetery and one man killed in a nearby kebab shop.
A 27-year-old male named Stephan B. has been arrested, according to a spokesman for the German Federal Prosecutor. The attack appears to have been motivated by «extreme far-right and anti-Semitic» views, according to German reports. The suspect live-streamed the attack on Twitch, an online video-game platform, before being arrested.
