In Los Gatos, members of the Jewish community gathered Sunday night to show support for the people in Israel.
The vigil took place at Congregation Shir Hadash.
Some say they felt helpless and needed to come together to help process the horror of the terrorist attacks in Israel.
“We have been crying for the last two days. Because there are no explanations, there are no words for what’s happening in Israel. For the brutality we are experiencing, for the horror we are seeing,” said Nico Socolovsky, a senior rabbi at Shir Hadash.
Matan Zamir, the deputy consul general of Israel to the Pacific Northwest condemned the attack.
“Hamas terrorists have been violent, have been brutal towards families, older people, babies, infants,” he said.
Zamir says his father and several other relatives in Israel are now in hiding and he’s worried what might happen if the terrorists find them.
Some said the timing of the attack was especially painful, Hamas started launching its missiles on a major Jewish holiday.
