Concert Aims to Uplift Pittsburgh

Music stars Avraham Fried, Shulem Lemmer and Lipa Schmeltzer will travel to Pittsburgh for a unity concert following the shooting.

Still recovering from the October 27 anti-Semitic shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue that left 11 people dead and 6 injured, the Pittsburgh Jewish community has announced a communal day of healing and unity concert to take place this Sunday.

The event will be held at the Congregation Beth Shalom Ballroom, 5915 Beacon St, Pittsburgh, just a mile away from where the shooting took place.

World-renowned Jewish music superstars Avraham Fried, Shulem Lemmer and Lipa Schmeltzer will perform live in concert for the greater community, and participants will be treated to a Jewish food festival complete with an extensive fair of traditional Jewish foods representing communities around the world.

“Our community has been devastated by this atrocious hate crime,” said Rabbi Elchonon Friedman, Rabbi of Bnai Emunoh Chabad - Greenfield, the event’s organizer along with Chabad of Western Pennsylvania, led by Head Shliach Yisroel Rosenfeld.

“We may have been knocked down, but we’re getting back up, and we’re excited to come together in a showing of community-wide unity that will not only aid the healing process, but make us stronger than ever before. We must put an end to hate, and that starts with joining together and doing good, for when the darkness of evil encounters the light of good — the light of good will always prevail.”

We need to be there for Yidden everywhere
May Hashem help that we never have to deal with something like this anywhere ever again. Unfortunately these things have happened before in other countries, especially in E"Y. Without chas cholom minimizing what happened here, we need to support Yidden and be there no matter where. Unfortunately, sometimes when it happens somewhere else we just move on.
