The Empire State Building and the Eiffel Tower turned out the lights on Sunday night in honor of the 11 people killed in an anti-Semitic shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue.
The New York City landmark switched off most of the lights on its tower, leaving only an orange halo glowing to “shine a light on gun violence awareness,” according to a statement.

“I express my support for the Jewish community and all of Pittsburgh’s inhabitants,” she added.
