A few days ago the peace of Shabbat was shattered at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life Or L’Simcha synagogue as a gunman stormed into the shul during services and murdered 11 worshippers. His heinous crime has left us devastated, but we are comforted by the many expressions of unwavering support that the Jewish community has received from around the world.
In the aftermath of the attack, the Jewish Federations of North America have called for a Solidarity Shabbat. Organizations around North America are calling for both Jews and non-Jews to go to services this Shabbat in solidarity with the Jewish community of Pittsburgh.
The Danforth Jewish Circle will be holding a special Shabbat service Friday, November 2 at 7PM at Eastminster United Church. Please join us as we come together to support our community.
Our multifaith partners and friends are invited to arrive by 6:45PM on Friday and stand outside, as an act of solidarity, as we enter the building. They will then be invited to join us inside for the remainder of prayer and kiddush.
Whether or not you are Jewish or a member of the DJC, all are welcome. We hope you will join us.
