NA’AMAT Pittsburgh: One Year After the Massacre
October 25, 2019
On Saturday October 27, 2018, Shabbat morning services were getting underway by the three congregations that gather at The Tree of Life building in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. At 9:55 AM, congregants of Tree of Life, Dor Hadash and New Light Congregations were senselessly massacred by an antisemitic white nationalist gunman who walked into their spiritual home and opened fire. When he was captured and arrested an hour and twenty minutes later, he left eleven people dead and six others injured and scars that will last a lifetime for the Pittsburgh community. It was the deadliest attack on a Jewish community in US history.
