I am grateful to God for getting us to this day.

Rabbi Jeffrey Myers of the Tree of Life Congregation after a jury found a Pennsylvania man guilty for murdering worshippers at the Pittsburgh synagogue in 2018.

*Important clarification – not all those murdered belonged to The Tree of Life Congregation: "All three congregations sharing the building — Dor Hadash, New Light and Tree of Life — lost members in the attack. The victims ranged in age from 54 to 97."
