We are devastated by the attack on our community

We are devastated by the attack on our friends and neighbors at Tree of Life*Or L’Simcha, Dor Hadash, and New Light. The loss to our community is incalculable. Our hearts and prayers are with the congregations and all those affected by this senseless act of violence. We pray for the wounded and for the families and friends of those who lost their lives.

In the 81 years JFCS has served our beloved Squirrel Hill and surrounding communities, all our work has been directed at improving the lives of all who live here, encouraging self-sufficiency, fostering inclusion, and making our community a better place to live. While the tragic mark of the attack will be felt forever, JFCS will be here for you, whoever you are, in the days, months and years ahead.
