Activities and in-person religious services are suspended out of concern for congregant and community health. Effective Friday, March 13, we will suspend activities and modify religious services; Rabbi Myers, Barb, and Alex will work mainly from home with limited hours in the office; meetings will be held via video conferencing.

Friday night services will be live streamed (only) on Tree of Life's Facebook page (Tree Of Life - Or L'Simcha Congregation) at 6:00 PM (other streaming options may be added later).

An abridged, one-hour Saturday morning service will be live streamed on Zoom at 10:00 AM. Rabbi Myers will conduct a text study; the text will be available the Worship webpage. You can also go to the Worship webpage to connect via Zoom (be sure you have downloaded the program first)  (https://www.treeoflifepgh.org/worship). For additional information, click here.

Tree of Life * Or L’Simcha Congregation is a traditional, progressive and egalitarian congregation based in Pittsburgh’s Squirrel Hill neighborhood.

We offer a warm and welcoming environment where even the oldest Jewish traditions become relevant to the way our members live today. From engaging services, social events, family-friendly activities and learning opportunities to support in times of illness or sorrow, we match the old with the new to deliver conservative Jewish tradition that’s accessible, warm and progressive.

We are deeply moved by the outpouring of support for our synagogue from our community and people across the country and around the world in the wake of the horrific anti-Semitic attack of October 27, 2018. We will continue to mourn our lost congregants, even as we honor their memories by healing, growing, and strengthening the congregation they loved. We deeply appreciate the many offers of assistance and support of the victims' families and to help rebuild the Tree of Life synagogue. Your support proves that love is truly stronger than hate.

The Tree of Life fund for Victims and Families is closed. You may still help our community heal by donating to the impacted synagogues or other community agencies.
