Tree of Life 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.

Tree of Life Congregation currently is gathering at the Rodef Shalom building (4905 Fifth Ave).

A High Holiday Message from Rabbi Myers

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING HIGH HOLIDAY SERVICES

Dear Tree of Life Family,

As we approach the High Holidays, we are excited to provide a meaningful and safe way to pray and connect to each other, G-d, and our community at large. However you choose to connect with Tree of Life, we hope you will find inspiration and comfort during this time.

Complete information on all High Holiday services, including dates and times, can be found on your ticket and here.

The link for viewing all High Holiday services at home can be found on your ticket.
A pre-recorded High Holiday family video service will be available on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

Below are the guidelines and protocols for our in person services, which will take place at Calvary Episcopal Church:

  • All those in attendance must present a ticket. If you have not received your ticket(s), please contact the synagogue office. Click here to purchase additional tickets or guest tickets.
  • All individuals in attendance must be vaccinated AND show proof of vaccination upon your first entry to Calvary. Please bring your vaccination card or a copy or image of your vaccination card.
  • Masks are required for all individuals over the age of 2 and must be worn at all times while indoors.
  • Physical distancing should be maintained; families and households are encouraged to sit distanced from other families and households. There are no assigned seats. All seating is open seating.
  • In the interest of keeping our children and youth safe, babysitting and children's/youth services will NOT be provided.

These protocols represent the up-to-date recommendations of our High Holiday Committee, which includes medical professionals, as well as current CDC guidelines. They are subject to change.

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.
