Nurse who treated Pittsburgh killer is JewishOne week after a gunman shouted antisemitic remarks as he killed 11 people and wounded six at a Pittsburgh synagogue, a nurse who treated his wounds said: “I’m sure he had no idea I was Jewish.”

Robert Bowers, 46, was shot by police at the Tree of Life synagogue in Squirrel Hill. He was treated at Allegheny General Hospital – during which he continued to shout antisemitic remarks, the hospital president said. Faced with a 44-count indictment that included charges of murder, hate crimes, obstructing the practice of religion and other crimes, Bowers pleaded not guilty. He faces the death penalty.

The Washington Post reported that “at least three” of the doctors and nurses that saved the gunman’s life were Jewish, a fact that attracted worldwide attention throughout a week of debate and mourning.

In a Facebook post on Saturday, Ari Mahler wrote: “So now, here I am, The Jewish Nurse that cared for Robert Bowers.
