The Pittsburgh Jewish Chronicle invites you to join the Chronicle Book Club’s Nov. 21 meeting, when we will be discussing “Squirrel Hill: The Tree of Life Synagogue Shooting and the Soul of a Neighborhood” by journalist Mark Oppenheimer. The author will join us during the Zoom meeting.

“Squirrel Hill: The Tree of Life Synagogue Shooting and the Soul of a Neighborhood,” published earlier this month, tracks the events of Oct. 27, 2018, and their aftermath. Oppenheimer interviewed 250 people as he worked on his retelling of the stories of Oct. 27, and visited Pittsburgh more that 30 times to do his research.

Prior to and during our meeting we will be soliciting questions from the community to pose to Oppenheimer about his book.


Your Hosts

Toby Tabachnick, editor of the Chronicle
David Rullo, Chronicle staff writer
