In the wake of the deadly shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, synagogues in Connecticut took part in the “Show up for the Shabbat” movement, encouraging people of all faiths to attend Shabbat services.
The rabbi at Temple Sholom says more than 400 people RSVP’d to Friday night's service, a reaction he says is comforting, following the attack.
Some newcomers and some familiar faces attended to send the message of unity.
Two dozen clergy representing other faiths also took part in Friday night's service.
There was security at the temple but the rabbi says they've had it for years.
