Jewish Community Marks One Year Since the Pittsburgh Attack

Almost one year ago, on a quiet Saturday morning, Pittsburgh’s Jewish community suffered the most brutal anti-Semitic attack in U.S. history when a gunman opened fire in the Tree of Life building, taking the lives of 11 innocent people across three Pittsburgh congregations: Dor Hadash, New Light, and Tree of Life * Or L'Simcha, which all were joined in prayer. One year later, we will take a moment to honor the memory of those we lost and other people who were affected. In solidarity, we ask that you join us in taking a moment to Pause with Pittsburgh.
