Religious services and programming at the Reform synagogue have been canceled due to the coronavirus crisis. The synagogue, in the southwestern part of Florida, was closed at the time of the incident.

The synagogue says in a post on its Facebook page that it is grateful for the outpouring of community support in the wake of the attack.
