The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage is proud to be a partner of Temple Emanu El’s series Tragedy Inspires Continued Activism.

A year ago, on October 27, 2018, one of the deadliest attacks on the Jewish community in the United States occurred in Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life community. Eleven people were killed and seven were injured during a Saturday Shabbat service. To raise awareness of the need for gun safety and encourage increased community involvement, Temple Emanu El will welcome members of the Pittsburgh Tree of Life community in the fourth program in its series entitled “Tragedy Inspires Continued Activism.”

Presenters include congregants Kerry Ban and VP of Youth Education Dana Kellerman, both from Dor Hadash congregation that meets at Tree of Life Synagogue in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh. Both involved with Squirrel Hill Stands Against Gun Violence along with Stephen Cohen, Co-President of New Light congregation that also meets at Tree of Life Synagogue. Zachary Paris, JD, Adjunct Professor of Political Science at John Carroll University, will moderate the discussion.

The doors will open at 6:30 pm. The program will start promptly at 7:00 pm. During the program, attendees will have the opportunity to write down questions for the speakers. Security will be present. No backpacks or purses are allowed. Carpooling is recommended.
