Every parish in the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh will have a special collection this weekend (November 10th and 11th) that will go towards the three Jewish congregations that worship at Tree of Life.
“This collection is a gift of love and solidarity from one religious community to another, to say that the Catholic people of Southwestern Pennsylvania suffer with you and we are here to support you,” Bishop David Zubik said. “The congregations at Tree of Life are free to use these donations in whatever way they believe is right, to help their members recover and to restore their house of worship.”
The donations can be used to help the families who lost loved ones or had loved ones injured during the October 27th attack and can go towards repairing the damages at the synagogue.
