Show Up For Shabbat

One Year After The Horrific Synagogue Shooting in Pittsburgh, Gather, Remember, and Act

Following the murder of 11 innocent Jews at prayer as part of the three congregations within Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life building last October, millions of people of all faiths rallied around AJC’s #ShowUpForShabbat initiative, packing synagogues in what became the largest-ever expression of solidarity with the American Jewish community.

On the one-year anniversary, AJC is again calling on all people of good conscience to #ShowUpForShabbat. Let us come together to honor the victims and raise our collective voice for a world free of antisemitism, hate, and bigotry.
