Tree of Life Synagogue, Pittsburgh
Statement from Holocaust Education Trust Ireland:
“Holocaust Education Trust Ireland (HETI) condemns the despicable attack on the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh in the strongest terms. The targeting of Jewish people who were attending a Sabbath morning services was an act of deep antisemitism and racism. HETI condemns all manifestations of hate crime wherever they occur. This attack underlines again the need for continued vigilance and awareness. Our deepest sympathies to the families of all the victims.
Events such as those which have occurred in the United States are a timely reminder to all of us of our obligations to be proactive in combatting hatred and in safeguarding our shared human values of respect for the dignity and beliefs of all.”
