Tree of Life Fundraiser

 

At the left you will find a photo taken at the November 12, 2018 Leadership Development Institute in Maryland.  It shows Irwin Harris of the Tri-State Region Tree of Life congregation, with Alan Pressman of the Hudson Valley Region.  Irwin is wearing a "Stronger than Hate" T-shirt.  This 'Stronger Than Hate' logo has been adopted as one response to the terrible events in Pittsburgh which eleven Jews were killed during Shabbat Services.

Please consider purchasing a "Stronger than Hate" T-shirt at the www.pittsburghstrongerthanhate.com website.  The sanctuary, where much of the shooting occurred, is deemed to be uninhabitable in as much as the congregants no longer feel comfortable praying in the defiled sanctuary.  

At least $6 per shirt goes to the Tree of Life congregation.  As of November 18, 2018, $60,000 had been raised for Tree of Life from the sale of these shirts.

There is a link at the www.pittsburghstrongerthanhate.com website to a video on the company that is printing the shirts.  You may also find the video here.
