The campaign is titled "Muslims Unite for Pittsburgh Synagogue" and it is a fundraiser for the victims of Saturday's horrific mass shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue.

Michael Eisenberg, the immediate past president of the Tree of Life, said synagogue officials had not gotten any threats that he knew of before the shooting.

Each of victims was middle-aged or older.

The auditorium of downtown Pittsburgh's Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall and Museum was packed for the 90-minute vigil, which began with music from an African-American choir. Religious leaders from around Chicago gathered to insist that a sleeping giant had been roused - and that love will overcome. "Show the haters that they will never win", he said.

"Words of hate are unwelcome in Pittsburgh", Myers continued. A 61-year-old woman was listed in stable condition, and a 70-year-old man was in critical condition, according to the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

Authorities searched Bowers' apartment Saturday and his vehicle Sunday, Jones said, but he would not comment on what was found. Bowers is scheduled to appear before a federal judge Monday afternoon.

The assault on the 150-year-old congregation was the deadliest anti-Semitic attack in recent USA history.

A gunman opened fire during a baby naming ceremony at the Tree of Life Congregation in Pittsburgh's Squirrel Hill neighbourhood. She said Rabinowitz died while trying to tend to the wounded, calling him a "voice of reason". Bowers surrendered to police after being injured by gunfire.

CNN reports: 'Dozens of people had arrived to the Tree of Life synagogue that morning to celebrate Shabbat services.

The attack happened amid a perceived rise in hate-related crimes nationwide and at the end of a particularly tense week in which more than a dozen explosive devices were sent to critics of President Donald Trump.

"If they had protection inside, the results would have been far better".

Bob Jones, head of the FBI's Pittsburgh office, said that worshippers "were brutally murdered by a gunman targeting them simply due to their faith", though he cautioned the shooter's full motive was not yet known. The attack is the deadliest on a Jewish community in U.S. history, the Anti-Defamation League said in a statement.

Trump said he would travel to Pittsburgh to express his condolences.

"I think the approach we need to be looking at is how we take the guns, which is the common denominator of every mass shooting in America, out of the hands of those who are looking to express hatred through murder", Mr. Peduto said.

"Our goal is to make Pittsburgh a place for immigrants and refugees to call home if they want to", said Reverend John Welch, a chaplain for the Pittsburgh Police Bureau.

Robert Bowers is 46-year-old and is a resident of Pittsburgh.

"We are devastated", said the group's head, Jonathan Greenblatt. "It's the environment that you create with your rhetoric".

The shooting came just one day after Cesar Sayoc was arrested for targeting Democratic political and entertainment figures with mail bombs, including Robert De Niro, the Obamas, and the Clintons. "But on Sabbath it's an open door", he said.

"This evil Anti-Semitic attack is an assault on humanity", Trump posted on Twitter on Saturday.
