Jewish communities and synagogues across the country are standing in unflinching solidarity with the Etz Chaim (Tree of Life) Synagogue in Pittsburgh by participating in the #ShowUpForShabbat initiative. As the leadership of the synagogue is strategizing over long-term security questions, we have committed to have police security for the short-term this Shabbat.
We will be safe and secure. What is more important than ever is for us is to keep our tent open; to be welcoming, hospitable and passionate about Jewish living. We encourage our members and our Jewish and non-Jewish friends to come worship with us for #ShowUpForShabbat and find inspiration in sharing the warmth and beauty of our tradition.
