JFS releases Statement on Shooting in Pittsburgh

Jewish Family Service of Greater New Orleans is devastated by the horrific act of violence and the senseless loss of eleven lives at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA this past weekend.

Establishments of worship are meant to be safe havens that shelter those from the storm of hatred. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims of this horrendous act and we stand with the Pittsburgh community and the rest of the nation in uniting against violence and anti-Semitism.

This Agency also recognizes the trauma and stress events like this may cause. JFS is here for you. If you or a loved one is looking to speak with someone, please call (504) 831-8475 to make an appointment.
