CLEVELAND, OH (October 28, 2018) – All of us at the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage are deeply saddened by yesterday’s tragic shooting in Pittsburgh. As the ADL reported, the murder of 11 people at Tree of Life Synagogue is believed to be the deadliest attack on Jews in American history. This horrific act is a reminder of why our museum exists, to build bridges and create cultural compassion. Our doors are open and we encourage everyone to join us here and work to stop the hate. We must never stop working to build the kind of inclusive society in which all people of all faiths and backgrounds are valued and respected. Our thoughts and prayers are with the community of Pittsburgh and the families of the victims. May their memories be for a blessing.
Please join us tonight as the entire greater Cleveland community comes together for the Tree of Life victims and their families. Jewish Federation of Cleveland’s 45-minute vigil will be held on October 29 at 5pm at the Mandel JCC Stonehill Auditorium. The entire community is invited to attend.
