NEW YORK (AP) — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Roman Catholic Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Rabbi Angela Buchdahl and other faith leaders will gather for a vigil at a Manhattan synagogue to call for civility following the mass shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh.

Tuesday’s event will be held at the Central Synagogue at 8:15 p.m. Tuesday and will be open to the public.

Buchdahl says the killing of 11 people at the synagogue in Pittsburgh on Saturday make sit particularly important for Americans of all faiths and races to come together to “heal the divisions” that have polarized the nation.

Cuomo, a Democrat, called the events of the past week, which included a series of pipe bombs sent to critics of President Donald Trump, “frightening and atrocious.”
