PRAYERS ASCENDING: Three people were shot and killed after a gunman opened-fire at the Jewish Community Center and Village Shalom

El Maleh Rachamim is the actual Jewish prayer for the dead, although less well known than the Mourner's Kaddish.

God, filled with mercy, dwelling in the heavens' heights, bring proper rest beneath the wings of your Shechinah, amid the ranks of the holy and the pure, illuminating like the brilliance of the skies the souls of our beloved and our blameless who went to their eternal place of rest. May You who are the source of mercy shelter them beneath Your wings eternally, and bind their souls among the living, that they may rest in peace. And let us say: Amen.

At this very moment, I have EWTN on, repeating the old (scurrilous) New Testament accusation, "The Jews said...his blood be upon us, and upon our children."

God help us if this BULLSHIT influenced the killer.

No more blood libel!
No more violence, EVER!
