Our hearts are broken again.
We share this statement from Tree of Life*Or L'Simcha, Dor Hadash and New Light Congregations following the Christchurch shooting
The members of Tree Of Life - Or L'Simcha Congregation, Congregation Dor Hadash, and New Light Congregation in Pittsburgh, PA, are profoundly saddened by the horrific shooting in two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand. After the Oct. 27, 2018 attack on our synagogue that killed 11 people in our congregations, we grieve with our fellow sons and daughters of Abraham on the senseless loss of life due to senseless hatred, which is an abomination in a civilized society. We stand beside our Muslim brothers and sisters and mourn alongside the families and friends who have lost loved ones in this unconscionable act of violence. We will continue to work towards a day when all people on this planet can live together in peace and mutual respect.
