Rabbi recounts California synagogue shooting

Rabbi recounts California synagogue shooting

Investigators are searching for more evidence and clues following Saturday's attack by a gunman at a synagogue in Poway, California, just north of San Diego.

Rabbi Goldstein said the suspect's gun "miraculously" jammed and he was then confronted by off-duty U.S. Border Patrol agent Jonathan Morales, who Goldstein said "recently discovered his Jewish roots".

"In the face of senseless hate we commit to live proudly as Jews in this glorious country", Rabbi Yonah Fradkin, executive director of Chabad of San Diego County, said in a statement obtained by The Associated Press.

Goldstein described Kaye as a "pioneering, founding member" of the congregation and says he is "heartbroken" by her death.

"I see a sight that is indescribable", the rabbi said, describing how a gunman pointed a rifle straight at him.

"I just ran, not even knowing that my fingers were blown off and curled all the kids together and got them outside", he said.

The racist, anti-Semitic document that police are investigating in relation to the shooting makes 10 references to Robert Bowers whom the author John Earnest calls an "inspiration". A girl and two men are being treated at local hospitals.

"During the shooting, four individuals were wounded and transported to Palimar hospital", he said.

Coming six months to the day after a white supremacist shot dead 11 people at a Pittsburgh synagogue, the attack raised new questions about a nationwide rise in anti-Semitism and in hate crimes generally - and about US President Donald Trump's often controversial response to them. Mr. Peretz, who was visiting from Israel, ushered children to safety on a playground before he was shot, witnesses said.

Gore said authorities were reviewing Earnest's social media posts, including what he described as a "manifesto".

Kevin Durant prefers to use to his 7-foot-5 wingspan, holding one arm high above Harden's head to deter his vision of the rim. Leonard sprained his ankle on the play and was lost for the rest of the series, which Golden State won in four games.

A person identifying himself as John Earnest posted an anti-Jewish screed online about an hour before the attack and cited the suspects accused of carrying out deadly attacks on mosques in New Zealand last month and at Tree of Life.

The anti-Semitic letter, issued prior to the incident, refers to the 2018 shooting in Pittsburgh, which took place on 27 October and became the deadliest ever attack against the Jewish community in the United States.

But the shooting came only days after former USA vice president Joe Biden highlighted Trump's 2017 remarks about the neo-Nazi march in Charlottesville, Virginia that left a counter-protester dead.

"All of us are human beings", he said.

"It was a hate crime, no doubt about it", national security adviser John Bolton said on "Fox News Sunday".

"No one should have to fear going to their place of worship, and no one should be targeted for practicing the tenets of their faith", he said.

Several dozen people, many wearing black, gathered on a street corner in Poway Sunday to show their support for the victims and congregation and to call for an end to hate and violence.

The attack occurred shortly before 11:30 a.m.in Poway, a suburb of about 50,000 residents, when the suspect walked into the synagogue and started shooting, Gore said.

She called the shooting "unbelievable" in a peaceful and tight-knit community.

"I'm here because I'm Jewish and this is my message", she said, pointing to a sign that read "never again" and "never forget".
