Prayers for Thalia and other victims

The Jewish community held a service for Thalia Hakin and the others killed or injured when a car drove into pedestrians in Melbourne.

Thalia Hakin had her whole life in front of her, but she was robbed of her future in the Bourke Street massacre.

The 10-year-old died on Friday after Dimitrious Gargasoulas, 26, allegedly drove a car into lunchtime crowds in Bourke Street mall and further up the road.

The Jewish community held a service for her and all the other victims on Sunday evening, to pray for the five dead and a speedy recovery for the injured.

Ahead of the service for hundreds of people, federal MP Michael Danby and local MP David Southwick said the community was deeply shocked by the tragedy.

Thalia should have been going back to Beth Rivkah Ladies College in a few weeks, they said.

“I think all Victorians can identify… with a girl who was going into grade five, her life all in front of her, robbed by some crazed person,” Mr Danby said.

“It is very important at this function to pray for all the recovery of all Victorians.”

Gargasoulas remains under police guard in hospital and is expected to face mulitple charges including murder over the five deaths and injury to more than 30 people.

A three-month-old baby, Thalia, a 25-year-old man, Jess Mudie, 22, and Matthew Si, 33, have died in the CBD tragedy. Others are still fighting for their lives..

Thalia was with her sister Maggie, nine, her mum, Nathalie. The are all still in hospital

Rabbi Daniel Rabin, president of Rabbinical Council of Victoria, addressed the service before the Hebrew prayers at the service in St Kilda East on Sunday.
