The leaders of the Tree of Life are currently making progressive plans to rebuild and renovate the building, turning it into what they hope will a Centre for Jewish life in the United States, and a symbol against hatred.
“There was never any doubt that we would go back to the site,” Tree of Life Executive Director Barb Feige said. “The congregation is a community. It survives without its building, but is committed to going back to that location.”
Speaking on the new plan for the new Pittsburgh Synagogue Building, Feige, said; the rebuilding now extends initial plans Tree of Life had to expand cooperation and collaboration among the three congregations and with the community.
