Local Jewish leaders expressed sympathy Sunday, a day after a deadly shooting at a Pennsylvania synagogue, and said members of the Jewish community must stand strong and remain proud of their faith.

Rabbi Mendy Harlig, executive director of Henderson-based Chabad of Green Valley, said he was shocked and saddened to hear the news of the shooting inside of a house of worship.

“The Jewish people are strong,” Harlig said. “They have prevailed, and they will prevail.”
