Author to discuss Tree of Life mass shooting at June 11 program  


Author Mark Oppenheimer will lecture in person and on Zoom at Temple Emanu-El on Sunday, June 11, from 4 to 5:30 p.m., about the 2018 antisemitic mass shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue, in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh.

Oppenheimer will base his talk on his book “Squirrel Hill: The Tree of Life Synagogue Shooting and the Soul of a Neighborhood,” published in 2021.

The free event is sponsored by the Rosen Library Committee at Temple Emanu-El, 99 Taft Ave., Providence. The first 25 people to register will receive a free copy of the book prior to the program so they will have time to read it. The program will also include book signings by the author.
