Stronger Than Hate


USCJ and its network of Conservative Jewish communities across North America are heartbroken and devastated by the horror of the shooting and murder at the Tree of Life Congregation in Pittsburgh. We grieve for those who died and pray for the recovery of those who were wounded, extending our condolences to all their families and friends.

We are outraged by the hatred this senseless act demonstrated, and distraught by the bloodshed brought once again by gun violence. As our Torah teaches us, we are each responsible for one another, and commanded to honor the image of God in one another. Our sense of justice compels us to address the core issues facing not only the Jewish people but all people in our country in pursuit of a civil society.
