Seminary Hosts Upcoming Interfaith Events

In response to the mass shooting at Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh's Squirrel Hill neighborhood, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary is coming together with faith leaders from across the city to host a number of events designed to help bridge our country's divides and engage in difficult conversations.

Join us for worship Nov. 14, 2018, at 11:30 a.m. in Hicks Chapel. The Rev. Dr. James Gilchrist, senior pastor of Westminster Presbyterian Church (Pittsburgh), and Rabbi Emeritus Mark Mahler of Temple Emanuel (South Hills), will be among the worship leaders for this interfaith service.

On Nov. 15, 2018, at 7:00 p.m. in Hicks Chapel, PTS will host "Woven Together: An Interfaith Response to the Shooting at Tree of Life Synagogue," a panel discussion addressing the challenges ahead and how faith leaders can respond to these traumatic events. The Rev. Liddy Barlow, executive director of Christian Associates of Southwest Pennsylvania; Sara Stock Mayo, director of music and ruach at Temple Ohav Shalom; and Rabbi Ron Symons, senior director for Jewish life and director of the Center for Loving Kindness and Civic Engagement at the Jewish Community Center of Pittsburgh, among others will serve as panelists.
