WE STAND WITH PITTSBURGH
SHALOM CHAVERIM (FRIENDS),
IT WAS JUST BEFORE THE SINGING OF EIN KELOHEINU, AT THE CLOSE OF THIS MORNING'S SHABBAT SERVICES THAT WE LEARNED ABOUT THE SHOOTING AT THE TREE OF LIFE CONGREGATION IN PITTSBURGH. LIKE ALL OF YOU, WE WERE SADDENED, OUTRAGED AND DEVASTATED BY THIS LOSS OF LIFE AT THE HANDS OF AN AFFIRMED ANTI-SEMITE.

Learning & Growing
Teaching children how to think “Jewishly”
Learning is a lifelong process. At Congregation Tifereth Israel we enjoy pluralistic learning, benefiting from the teachings of all denominations and backgrounds. We believe that Judaism is a thriving religion with ancient and deep roots that remain relevant today.
CTI’s Teen Group (Kiki’s Kids) visited the Museum of Jewish Heritage
Here are some of their impressions:
This museum not only made me more aware of my Jewish heritage, but also of the horror that was the Holocaust. It was really inspiring to see how people found ways to keep Judaism alive. - Zosia
Seeing the museum made me feel very emotional and more in touch with my Jewish heritage. Knowing that almost half of the Jews in the world were brutally murdered is awful, along with five million others. I was able to learn facts about the Holocaust that were previously unknown to me. I am happy to have participated in this trip and this emotional experience-Julia
