Expression of our feelings on the event at Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.

Unbelievably, yet another mass murder has occurred in a place of worship: Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. The dead included a Bubbie (grandma) to her family and community, a healing doctor that ran out to help the wounded at the shooting, two gentle spirited brothers who never missed a service, a President of the congregation who provided services to the elderly community, a dentist who treated immigrants and refugees who had never been to a dentist in their lives, a retired research specialist who contributed to learning and development research, a retired accountant who could lead services whenever needed, an all American couple that had ‘Support our Troops’, ‘God Bless America’ and ‘America the Beautiful’ stickers on their front door and a regular worshiper who gave generously of his time to the synagogue and welcomed strangers. People of faith who loved God, improved the world for others and lived lives that mattered.

At the Northwest Suburban Interfaith Council, we mourn each of these individuals that perished at the hands of evil and hatred. O LORD Almighty, our souls are in anguish and our wearied spirits cry out to you. Yet in this despair we renew our resolve to make this earth a better place by joining hands with our interfaith brothers and sisters. May we be witnesses of hope and comfort that only you can provide in trying times such as this.

The Interfaith Council gives people an opportunity to share our commonalities and, at the same time, honor our religious differences.

The mission of the Interfaith Council is to foster understanding among those of different faiths, encourage cooperative social service efforts, and serve as an ethical and moral voice promoting the positive growth and unity of our community.  This is done through open dialogue, discussion, fellowship, and collaboration to meet some of the agreed upon social needs in our suburban area.  In this way, our community can break down barriers caused by the lack of knowledge about, and the fear of, other religions.
