Statement on Tree of Life Congregation
in Pittsburgh

We are deeply saddened and troubled by the murders and violence that were committed at the Tree of Life Congregation in Pittsburgh. We mourn this loss of life which occurred at a place of worship during a family celebration.

This tragic antisemitic incident underscores the  sad reality that there is still much work to be done to educate people about the deadly  consequences of hate and the need to teach the importance of tolerance and respect for people of all religions and cultures. 

Our condolences go out to the victims’ families and friends and we wish a full recovery for those congregants and police officers injured.

The safety and security of our visitors and staff are always a top priority for us. We will continue to maintain and monitor the security measures we have in place and thank our community relationships and law enforcement for their partnership in these efforts.

From Hollywood to Nuremburg

On view July 26 through December 30, 2018

Directors John Ford, Samuel Fuller and George Stevens created classics like The Grapes of Wrath, Shane and The Big Red One. They also filmed the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps. This powerful exhibit explores these filmmakers’ experiences during and after WWII, their confrontation with Nazi atrocities, and the mark it left on them as artists.

The exhibition, curated by historian and film director Christian Delage, was designed, created, and distributed by the Mémorial de la Shoah (Paris, France), and made possible through the generous support of SNCF.

The Holocaust Unfolds

On view October 3 through December 28, 2018

Detroit Jewish News Clips

Unlike mainstream media - including the Detroit Free Press and the New York Times - the Detroit Jewish News and its predecessor publication, the Detroit Jewish Chronicle, continuously reported on the rise and fall of Nazism. View reports from Hitler's ascension to power through the destruction of European Jewry to the trial of Adolph Eichmann.

The exhibit debunks the myths about what was known and when.

The exhibit is open Sunday through Friday and is free with museum admission or membership. For more information about the exhibit, please call 248-553-2400.

This exhibit is made possible by the Detroit Jewish News Foundation.
