two lit Shabbat candles

The Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit announced a Shabbat Solidarity event the weekend of Nov. 2-3 at congregations throughout the area in memory of the victims from the shooting last Shabbat at Tree of Life Congregation in Pittsburgh.

Congregations across Jewish Detroit — and throughout the nation — will host a special Shabbat service to remember the 11 Jews killed at the Squirrel Hill community synagogue.

Help honor their memory and repudiate the poisonous legacy of anti-Semitism by filling our congregations during Shabbat as a proud and unified community.
