A student from the Yeshiva Schools of Pittsburgh Girls School cries as she and others pray and sing outside of the Tree of Life synagogue on Monday, Oct. 29, 2018.

A free concert to show support of and solidarity with Pittsburgh’s Jewish community in the wake of the Tree of Life shooting will take place Sunday at Temple Sinai in Squirrel Hill.

The event is being organized by HaZamir: The International Jewish Teen Choir.

Molly May, director of the Pittsburgh chapter of HaZamir, said the national office of the choir asked to hold a concert in Pittsburgh in response to the tragedy.

“When the shooting at Tree of Life happened, my teen singers and I received messages from all over, offering love and prayers and confirming that we were okay,” she said.

The 3 p.m. concert is open to the public. May said teens, parents and conductors from HaZamir chapters in Boston, Miami, New York, Cleveland, Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Columbus and other cities are expected to attend.

“We also have teens and adults who will be coming for the weekend to spend Shabbat in Pittsburgh, and we look forward to hosting them in Squirrel Hill,” she said.

HaZamir has 38 choral chapters in the U.S. and Israel.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
