Due to incredible interest in this event, we have met capacity and have closed registration. For security purposes, we will not be accepting walk-ins.

The Pittsburgh Jewish community’s response to the tragic massacre in 2018 offers profound lessons on safety and security for the Jewish community that have become even more critical in the wake of the October 7 Hamas terrorist attacks on Israel and the rising tide of threats and incidents against Jews across North America.

Join us for a film screening of HBO’s “A Tree of Life: The Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting,” hosted by the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia in partnership with HBO and the Secure Community Network.

Following the screening, there will be a panel discussion of survivors and experts.

This event is free to the public. Seats are limited and seating location is on a first-come-first-served basis.
