Who We Are: Our Mission
To support the well-being and continuity of the Jewish people in greater Fort Wayne, in Israel, and throughout the world.
It is with great sadness that we share the horrific and heartbreaking news of yet another hate-crime shooting, this time in Pittsburgh, PA.
During religious ceremonies at Tree of Life, a 150 year old Jewish congregation, alleged gunman, Robert Bowers, opened fire murdering eleven people and injuring many others. At least four police officers were hit in an exchange of gunfire with the shooter.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Pittsburgh Jewish community. The peace of Shabbat was brutally shattered and lives tragically lost. All of us stand with our brothers and sisters there.
Difficult days are ahead in Pittsburgh. Let us all condemn antisemitism against the Jewish people and Israel in all its evil forms.
May the memories of those whose lives were lost be a blessing to all. Our thoughts are with their families at this time.
