Tonight, we at Bet Mishpachah mourn with the members of Tree of Life Synagogue, Congregation Dor Hadash, and the entire Jewish community of Pittsburgh.

Bet Mishpachah joins with the world-wide Jewish community in sending our condolences to the members of the  Tree of Life - Or L'Simcha  synagogue and to the entire Pittsburgh Jewish community, for generations centered in the beloved Squirrel Hill neighborhood. Our hearts and prayers are with you in this time of senseless tragedy. 

With all people of good conscience, we condemn this hate-filled act of violence and murder. We also condemn the angry, demonizing and divisive rhetoric that directly encourages hate and hate crimes like this. We call on secular and religious leaders to do everything possible to mend and unify our broken society. May they change their sword-like words into egalitarian tools that affirm the sanctity of all life and the inherent dignity and rights of all human beings, created in the Divine image.

With broken hearts,

The Bet Mishpachah Board of Directors, Rabbi Green, and our Religious Affairs Leadership
