Michael Rubinkam of the Associated Press reports, “The state of Pennsylvania is pledging $6.6 million towards redevelopment of Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue, where a gunman killed 11 people in 2018 in the nation’s deadliest attack on Jews.” The funds will be used to expand and renovate the synagogue’s grounds. They will include a memorial and a wing for the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh. The synagogue’s rabbi, Jeffrey Myers, said to Gov. Tom Wolf, “You’ve given Tree of Life a very generous Hanukkah present. Your timing is impeccable.”
