Community News: #ShowUpForShabbat

The Stanton Street Shul stands with the Pittsburgh community following the horrific murder of 11 Jews at the Tree of Life Synagogue during Shabbat morning services. On Sunday morning, Lindsey and Rabbi Bodner hosted a prayer gathering to remember the victims and express our feelings among friends. Tens of community members responded to the call, honored their memory and prayed for the physically and emotionally wounded.


All around the world, thousands of Jews and non-Jews are pledging to #ShowUpForShabbat this weekend in solidarity with Pittsburgh’s Jewish community and sending a resounding message that love triumphs over hate. Join us for davening on Friday night and Shabbat morning and stand up against hate and antisemitism in the USA and beyond.
