Congregation Beth Shalom will host an interfaith gathering and memorial Monday, Oct. 29 at 7 p.m. to remember the victims in the shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh on Saturday.

“At a time when our hearts are heavy and our spirits are wounded, it is important that we come together as a community to support one another and to realize that we are stronger together,” Rabbi Niles Goldstein and congregation President Ellyn Elson wrote in inviting the community to join.

The two said Napa Police Chief Robert Plummer reached out to the Napa synagogue within an hour of news of the mass shooting to offer support and police protection, including security for Monday’s vigil.

Congregation Beth Shalom is at 1455 Elm St. For information, call 253-7305 or visit
