PITTSBURGH (AP) – The first anniversary of the deadliest attack on Jews in U.S. history is being marked around the world.
The shooting at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue on Oct. 27, 2018, killed 11 worshippers and wounded seven others.
Numerous community service projects are planned in the city Sunday along with private and public memorial services.
Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra musicians will perform at a special event in Germany.
Thousands are also expected to participate in Sunday’s remembrance through Pause With Pittsburgh, a virtual memorial event created by the Jewish Federations of North America.
Last week, Tree of Life leaders unveiled their vision for the damaged building, including a rebuilt space for places of worship, a memorial, and classrooms and exhibitions.
