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.

Announcements

Tree of Life is horrified and saddened by the attack in a Rabbi’s home in Monsey, New York, as they were celebrating Chanukah. This continued spate of anti-Semitic violence in the New York area and around the country is deeply disturbing. Chanukah, which is known as the Festival of Lights, commemorates the rights of a minority community to observe in freedom, while this attack is an attempt to extinguish the light and remove those rights. In the spirit of Chanukah, our light will continue to shine.

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  to the impacted synagogues or other community agencies.
