Statement Regarding the Violence at the Tree of Life Synagogue

October 30, 2018 11:41 AM | Ronald Hicks (Administrator)

We are profoundly saddened by the horrific attack on members of the Jewish community gathered for worship at the Tree of Life Synagogue on Saturday, October 27, 2018.  The attack represents a purely evil act which has no place in our society.  To the entire Jewish community of Pittsburgh, and all of our Jewish friends and members, Three Rivers Business Alliance stands with you in solidarity against this hatred, and we join our fellow Pittsburghers in mourning those murdered and injured through this senseless act.

As an organization dedicated to making the Pittsburgh/Greater Allegheny region an influential and diverse business community, 3RBA strives to build a society in which all persons live and work in harmony.  We will continue to build a bridge of tolerance, understanding, and love for all, and we will work to bring equality and opportunity to all regardless of their age, race, gender, sexual identity, religion, political association, ethnic origin, or any other individual or group characteristic unrelated to ability, performance, and qualification.

The Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh has established a fund to help those affected by the attack. Please consider standing in solidarity with our Jewish Community by making a contribution. Every bit helps.

We are #StrongerThanHate.
