The thoughts and prayers of the Tulane University community are with Tree of Life Congregation in Pittsburgh as they mourn the loss of their loved ones following another senseless act of violence and hate. Tulane Hillel is hosting the Tulane Vigil for The Tree of Life Synagogue, tonight at 8 p.m. on the Berger Family Lawn (LBC Quad). Please join your fellow Tulanians for this evening of remembrance and unity in opposition to bigotry, prejudice and violence.

“We are horrified by such acts, which occur far too often in our society from Charleston to Sutherland Springs to the shooting last week near Louisville,” Tulane President Mike Fitts said. “Our thoughts of sorrow and solidarity are joined with prayers of hope and calls of action for a safer, less violent country and world.”
