Temple Shalom will host a community-wide interfaith service Friday.

The event will offer participants a chance to pray for and stand in solidarity with the Tree of Life Congregation in Pittsburgh.

“Standing together as a sign of strength against hate and antisemitism, Temple Shalom has organized a community-wide service to honor those who were affected by this senseless act and to stand together with the Acadiana community of all faiths affirming the participants’ unique identities and faiths,” a release from the congregation states.

“Temple Shalom is joining the national movement #ShowupforShabbat as a show of solidarity by congregating in the Temple rather than being afraid.”

The event will begin at 7 p.m. at Temple Shalom, 603 Lee Avenue in downtown Lafayette.

Rabbi Ross and the congregants of Temple Shalom are inviting members of the interfaith community, pastors, priests, the general public and the media to attend.
