At Beth Chayim Chadashim, remembering the victims of Pulse with prayers and tears

There were tears. There was solidarity. There was singing. There was hope. There was love.

More than 100 people gathered at Beth Chayim Chadashim (BCC) for a vigil held in honor of the victims of the June 12 shooting at an LGBTQ nightclub in Orlando. Police officers stood outside the synagogue, as did security guards. People were given name tags as they came in so it could be verified that they had gone through the security.
