Northampton Jewish community gathering for Tree of Life

October 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

We are gathering Monday night at 7-8 p.m. held in the CBI sanctuary, led together by Rabbi Justin David (Congregation B’nai Israel) and Rabbi Riqi Kosovske (Beit Ahavah). All welcome to be together, to reflect, share, cry, sing, pray and find spiritual comfort, grieve, find hope and strength together after the horrific shooting at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue on Shabbat, where 11 were killed. We now know their names and their lives. We invite you to join us and not to be alone. All are welcome.

We hope to plan a larger interfaith Upper Valley event at a later date. There are many events and vigils happening in our area through this difficult time through mourning to action.

עֵץ חַיִּים הִיא לַמַּחֲזִיקִים בָּהּ, וְתֹמְכֶֽיהָ מְאֻשָּׁר
Eitz chayim hee la-machazikim bah, v’tom’che-ha m’ushar.
“It is a Tree of Life to them that hold fast to it, and all of its supporters are happy;
Its ways are ways of pleasantness, and all its paths are peace.”
– Proverbs 3:17-18
