The Shabbat attack last October at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh was the deadliest act of anti-Semitism in North American history. The following Shabbat, people of all faiths came together across the nation to attend synagogues, in what became the largest-ever expression of solidarity with the American Jewish community. We gathered across denominations and faiths to pray, to mourn, and to strengthen one another. This year, to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the tragic attack, The Jewish Federation is proud to partner with the Jewish Community Relations Council and with AJC in calling on our community to #ShowUpForShabbat. Let us come together to honor the victims and raise our collective voice for a world free of antisemitism, hate, and bigotry.
Through The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington’s partnership with Secure Community Network (SCN) and the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC), we are working to enhance the safety and security of the Greater Washington Jewish community. Together, we are working to foster a culture of empowerment, collaboration, and vigilance, ensuring that all Jewish organizations operate safely and securely.
