Hundreds of people flooded the streets Wednesday night to mourn two of the victims killed after two assailants opened fire at a kosher market in Jersey City.
In Jersey City, crowds of men in black hats surrounded the casket of grocery store owner Mindy Ferencz in the Jersey City neighborhood of Greenville at the site of a synagogue under construction. Hundreds of women, separated from the men as per Orthodox Jewish tradition, stood in the bitter cold sobbing.
At the same time, hundreds gathered outside the Satmar Bais Medrash on Rodney Street in Williamsburg to mourn 24-year-old Moshe Deutsch.
As the funerals for Ferencz and Deutsch took place, investigators were still trying to determine what motivated the pair of shooters, who were also killed, to carry out Tuesday’s attack.
