Pittsburg Always in Our Hearts
August 6,2020

If youíve wandered past my office door since late October 2018 you probably noticed that the names of those murdered at the Tree of Life synagogue have been posted there. I promised myself to keep their names on the door until such time when I could pay my respects in person.

This week I was in Pittsburgh and stopped to honor their memory. I took this video while I was there. Interestingly, in the annual campaign video we recently added to the Federationís website (have a look on the home page under the Trunk of Tolerance) the synagogue is also featured. We remember the names of the victims and I have kept my promise. I may take their names off the door now and move them inside, then again I may not. If you wander (safely) you can see for yourself.
