Special Screening of A Tree of Life: The Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting

Thursday, December 8, 2022
6:30 pm
The Paley Museum, 25 West 52 Street, NYC

The acclaimed HBO documentary A Tree of Life: The Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting explores the aftermath of the deadliest antisemitic attack in American history, which took place on October 27, 2018. We learn firsthand from the survivors from the Tree of Life synagogue the emotional agony of the tragedy and how their lives fundamentally were transformed by the hatred of a white supremacist. After the screening, the Paley Center welcomes a panel of experts, including the filmmakers, to discuss how the Pittsburgh congregation has overcome the trauma and set out on a path towards healing. Our panel will also take a larger look at how this hate-based shooting stems from the current political and social climate and how documentaries like this one are an example of how media can be used to combat antisemitism.

This program is made possible by generous support from Shari Redstone, Aryeh and Elana Bourkoff.

Additional support provided by The David Berg Foundation.
