Commemorating the Tree of Life Tragedy with Dr. Beth Kissileff

October 25, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

On October 27, 2018, three congregations were holding their morning Shabbat services at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh’s Squirrel Hill neighborhood when a lone gunman entered the building and opened fire. He killed eleven people and injured six more in the deadliest anti-Semitic attack in American history. The story made international headlines for weeks following the shooting, but Pittsburgh and the local Jewish community could not simply move on when the news cycle did.

The essays in this anthology, written by local journalists, academics, spiritual leaders, and other community members, reveal a city’s attempts to come to terms with an unfathomable horror.

Join us via Zoom as Dr. Kissilef discusses this soon-to-be-published anthology.
