The members of the Institute of Judaeo-Christian Studies express our deep sorrow on learning of the terrible attack on the Tree of Life congregation at prayer on this past Sabbath! We join our sentiments with the statement below by Seton Hall’s Interim President.
The Jewish communities in Pittsburgh have been at the forefront of sustained efforts to reach the younger generation in Catholic and Jewish schools, along with service to the wider community.
Jewish-Christian Studies and many other programs at Seton Hall University strive explicitly to implement the teachings of the Church on Judaism and the Jewish people in the classroom and beyond. May all people of good will reach out to their neighbors who express anti-Jewish bigotry in words before anyone moves into deeds of terror. May hatred be replaced with a common search for justice and peace!
