A moving TribLIVE editorial lists all the ways the Pittsburgh community came together to help, even in the face of extreme hatred and cruelty.
We continue to remember those killed in the recent tragedy at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. Now more than ever it is important to provide security to Jews who are struggling to protect their communities from anti-Semitism and terrorism. In the past years, our Fellowship donors have been helping to build a reinforced trauma center in Sha'ar HaNegev, an Israeli community near the Gaza Strip, and we thank our donors for making this protection possible.
The Fellowship helps provide security to a group of Jewish schools throughout the former Soviet Union, ensuring the students can learn in a safe environment. We received this heartfelt thank-you letter from a teacher at one of those schools in Ukraine.
As the funerals for the victims of the Tree of Life Synagogue shooting are commencing, people of all faiths around the world are gathering to remember those killed and to stand against this act of anti-Semitism in a show of interfaith unity.
