Bay Area synagogues tightened security and held vigils over the weekend after a gunman killed 11 people and wounded six others on Saturday at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Robert Bowers, 46, was charged late Saturday with 29 federal counts, including hate crimes. The alleged gunman had a history of making anti-Semitic statements online and told police that "all these Jews need to die," authorities said. We'll discuss the attack, which comes as incidents of anti-Semitism in the U.S. are on the rise.
