Shabbat Services

Friday, October 25, 2019, 7:30 p.m.

The tragic shooting at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue happened one year ago this Sunday. As they did last year in the immediate aftermath of the shooting, the American Jewish Committee is calling on people to #ShowUpForShabbat this weekend to “stand in solidarity with Pittsburgh’s Jewish community, and raise our collective voice for a world free of antisemitism, hate, and bigotry.” We hope many of you will join us for Shabbat services this Friday as we reaffirm the vibrancy and resilience of the Jewish community and offer continued prayers for healing and peace.

Oneg host: Evan Torlin

Board host: Robin Frisch
