Honor. Restore. Connect.

Nearly one year ago, the American Jewish
community suffered the most brutal anti-Semitic attack in the history of the United States when a gunman opened fire in the Tree of Life building in Pittsburgh, taking the lives of 11 innocent people from three congregations: Dor Hadash, New Light and Tree of Life * Or L’Simcha, all of whom were joined in prayer. One year later, we will take a moment to honor their memory.

On October 27th people from around the world will have the opportunity to join Pittsburgh in a public memorial service. We invite you to join us at the Jewish Community Center of Scranton (JCC) to pause and pledge to maintain our abiding sense of unity and responsibility for one another. A brief program will take place at the JCC at 4:30pm and will precede the watching of the public memorial service online which begins at 5pm.
