Jerry Rabinowitz, 66

He reportedly died running into the gunfire to help those who had been injured, according to The Independent. Rabinowtiz was also honoured posthumously by The AIDS Memorial, which remembered him on social media for his work with HIV/AIDS patients in Pittsburgh. The post featured a person with HIV/AIDS describing Rabinowitz as being “known in the community for keeping us alive the longest,” saying he often held HIV/AIDS patients’ hands without gloves.

Photos: These are the victims of the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre

Eleven people were killed when a gunman opened fire at a Pittsburgh synagogue on Saturday.

Most of those who lost their lives were elderly worshippers who had gathered on the Jewish Sabbath for a service that included a bris for a gay couple’s twins, according to LGBTQ publication The Advocate.

Numerous reports have said suspected gunman Robert Bowers burst into the Tree of Life synagogue, shouting “All Jews must die” before opening fire on the congregation. Bowers was wounded and taken into custody, where other reports say he made similar statements to police. According to Reuters, Bowers has a “history of posting anti-Semitic material online and faces 29 counts, including a hate crime charge. He will appear in court on Monday.

The attack is the deadliest on the U.S. Jewish community in American history, according to the Anti-Defamation League, which monitors anti-Semitism and violent incidents against Jewish people in the U.S.

Here is a look at those who lost their lives. At the time of this writing, photos were not available for every victim, but this slideshow will be updated as soon as we have them.
