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.


Tree of Life Congregation was founded more than 150 years ago in 1864, Or L’Simcha in 2005. In 2010, the two Pittsburgh congregations merged to form Tree of Life*Or L’Simcha.

As a conservative Jewish congregation, Tree of Life*Or L’Simcha remains true to traditional teachings, yet is also progressive and relevant to the way we live today.

From our warm, inviting and intellectually stimulating atmosphere to our fun adult, children and family programs, it’s the perfect environment to grow a strong faith rooted in tradition.


Rabbi Hazzan Jeffrey Myers has been the spiritual leader of Tree of Life*Or L'Simcha since August 2017. Read about Rabbi Hazzan Myers' background, his blog posts, and news articles about him here.
