(September 6, 2019 / JNS) The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has donated the money it received from winning the 2019 Pulitzer Prize for breaking-news reporting to the Tree of Life*Or L’Simcha Synagogue in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh, where 11 Jewish worshippers were shot and killed by a gunman during Shabbat-morning services on Oct. 27, 2018.
It was the deadliest attack in American Jewish history.
The publication won the $15,000 prize in April. The Pulitzer is one of journalism’s highest honors.
In a Facebook post, the synagogue said, “Pittsburgh is truly home to some amazing neighbors!”
