Our thoughts and prayers are with the members of the Tree of Life Congregation. All of America grieves, and we send our sympathy to the families the Jewish Community in Pittsburgh. We at the Virginia Holocaust Museum condemn this heinous act of hatred and anti-Semitism.
We urge everyone to unite together with the Richmond Jewish and Interfaith community as we meet in solidarity and support for the members of the Tree of Life Synagogue and the Pittsburgh Jewish community. Please join us on Tuesday, October 30th at 7 pm, at the Weinstein JCC, 5403 Monument Ave, Richmond. We will come together in prayer and song to express our sorrow, share condolence, and find comfort in the bonds of community.
Carpooling is encouraged as parking will be limited. We plan to be outdoors, so dress appropriately for evening weather.
