Pause with Pittsburgh this Sunday

Nearly one year ago the Jewish community suffered the most brutal anti-Semitic attack in the history of the U.S. when a gunman opened fire at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, killing 11 innocent people.

On Sunday, October 27 at 4:00 pm central time the community in Pittsburgh will join in a public memorial service. You are invited to pause and share in a collective moment of remembrance. 

Sign up to receive a text message at 4:00 pm that will contain a video with a prayer of mourning and the names of the 11 people who lost their lives. After sharing this collective moment, you’ll get a link so you can virtually join Pittsburgh’s local service. Then, you’ll have the opportunity to submit a message of solidarity by text.
