Woven Together: An Interfaith Response to the Shooting at Tree of Life Synagogue

November 15, 2018, 7:00-8:30 p.m.

Hicks Chapel Sanctuary, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary


In the wake of the shooting inside the Tree of Life synagogue that left 11 worshipers dead and wounded six others, people of faith have grieved together, fed each other, and prayed for the Pittsburgh Jewish community. But how do we speak about this tragedy to people in our faith communities? How can we imagine a way forward that accounts for our diversity as well as our shared humanity? Join interfaith panelists who have been at the forefront of the faith community response to the shooting for insight and conversation. 

This event is free and open to the public; registration is not necessary. Visit this site for updates.
