Community Interfaith Service and Solidarity Gathering
Community Interfaith Service
and Solidarity Gathering
for Tree of Life Synagogue
Join us for an interfaith service and solidarity gathering as we come together to mourn the 11 innocent lives lost, express our outrage and concern, and join in prayer as a community for the speedy recovery of those injured. Hear from community leaders including Washington, DC's Mayor Muriel Bowser, Governor of Virginia Ralph Northam, and Governor of Maryland Larry Hogan.
We are horrified and heartbroken by the despicable murderous attack at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh’s Squirrel Hill neighborhood that took place during Shabbat services. Words are insufficient to convey our community's profound pain at the slaughter of innocent people who were worshiping with their community on the holy day of Shabbat, a time that is a weekly reminder to celebrate joy and peace.
This is a public event open to the community. RSVP is requested.
Please note that seats will be filled on a first-come first-served basis. Guests are encouraged to arrive early in order to proceed through heightened security.
