We Rise: National Solidarity Gathering
Two Years After the Shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue
Tuesday, October 27, at 8 pm

This powerful online event will honor the memory of those who were killed at Tree of Life and all victims of white nationalist violence.
 We will hear from Jewish leaders in Pittsburgh and prominent faith leaders and elected officials. We will learn how we can fight the threat of white nationalism. And — as we head into the final week of the election — join with our partners in a meaningful evening of solidarity.
