Nearly one year ago…
The Pittsburgh Jewish community suffered the most brutal anti-Semitic attack in the history of the United States when a gunman opened fire in the Tree of Life building in Pittsburgh, taking the lives of 11 innocent people from three congregations: Dor Hadash, New Light and Tree of Life * Or L’Simcha, all of whom were joined in prayer.
One year later, The Pittsburgh Community is mobilizing an international effort to honor the memory of those who lost their lives that day. In solidarity, we ask that you help to promote this effort within your community and join The Network and our colleagues at JFCS Pittsburgh as we Pause with Pittsburgh.
Join us on October 27th at 5:00 pm EST, as we share a collective moment of remembrance. When you register, you will opt in to receive a series of text messages which include:
- A video with a mourning prayer and the names of the 11 lives lost.
- A link to a livestream video where you can join the Pittsburgh community in a public memorial service.
- An opportunity to submit a message of support.
No matter where you are, together, we will pause and pledge to maintain our abiding sense of unity and responsibility for one another.
Remember. Repair. Together.
On October 27th, The Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) is hosting a commemorative day of service, study and community, in honor of the lives lost and the people affected by the attack.
Registration for specific volunteer opportunities and Torah learning sessions are open. Learn more at https://pittsburghoct27.
