Federation CJA 360 - November 2, 2018

This week, we are dedicating our 360 to coverage of last Saturday’s attack at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, which took 11 lives, injured 6 more, and has left the entire Jewish community in mourning. We invite everyone to take part in this weekend’s North American-wide Solidarity Shabbat to #StandWithPittsbugh. Shabbat Shalom, and may their memories be a blessing.
