 The opposite of love is not hate, it is indifference.”
~Elie Wiesel
In the wake of the tragedy that occurred at the Tree of Life Congregation, Jewish communities nationwide are standing in solidarity with our friends in Pittsburgh. Please join us in participating in the 
Go Fund Me Campaign for this sacred community.
Your contribution will go directly to the Tree of Life congregation to help them rebuild and to support the victims and their families.


We are so deeply appreciative of the outpouring of support we had at our Interfaith Vigil on Tuesday evening, October 30. Thank you to the many congregants, community members, clergy, leaders of faith, police officers, fire fighters and elected officials who walked into our Sanctuary determined to stand together and love and strengthen one another.  If you were not able to attend, or simply want to hear the inspiring words and beautiful music from the event, here is the link to the streamed video.
