CHERRY HILL, N.J. -

On Saturday, October 27th, another mass shooting took the lives of 11 people who were worshiping in a Jewish synagogue.

The shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue is believed to be the deadliest attack on Jews in United State history.

Officials with the Jewish Federation of South Jersey say following this attack, people of all faiths have come together in support of our local Jewish community here in South Jersey.

"Everyone came together last night for an incredible service and we had representation from every religion, every synagogue, from the Muslim community, the Christian community, everyone came out in support of the Jewish community, which was so beautiful and together we all prayed," said CEO of Jewish Federation of South Jersey, Jennifer Dubrow Weiss.

Candles in honor of those lost in Saturday's shooting burn on Monday, October 29th, at the Jewish Federation in Cherry Hill.

Dubrow Weiss says it's important that they go on with their daily life, with their Jewish life, so they don't let the enemy win.
