Tree of Life Synagogue Victims

$1,212,210 of $1.2M goal

Raised by 18,234 people in 24 days
An anti-Semite attacked and killed several attendees to a baby’s bris at a Pittsburgh synagogue. This fundraiser is meant to help the congregation with the physical damages to the building, as well as the survivors and the victims’ families. Respond to this hateful act with your act of love today.

This is a GoFundMe Certified Charity campaign. This means that money is processed by GoFundMe's nonprofit partner PayPal Giving Fund, and funds are sent directly to the Tree of Life Congregation. As the campaign organizer, I cannot access or manage any of the donations or disbursements. GoFundMe is in contact with and supporting the synagogue throughout this process.

Thank you to you all for helping the synagogue! The goal of $1 million was reached. I increased the goal, because more people still want to help. Please share this with your friends and family. Social media shares go a long way.

Some people have donated a certain amount per family member. Remember that pets are also family!

Thanks to all of you!

Hi all,

Some people have expressed concerns over the transfer of funds. I am not involved in the transfer. GoFundMe has contacted the synagogue to organize the transfer. There is no individual involved, and the money will go straight to the bank account Tree of Life provides with no intermediary individual. The only transaction I'm involved is the $36 I donated, myself. When I go to the withdrawal page, this message is what I get.

Thank you everybody for your generosity to this community! You are wonderful.

Wow! We’re almost at $100,000. Please share to reach there. I just raised the goal to $200,000. You can’t underestimate the generosity of this Nation and Her people. As I understand, the congregation still has no idea about this campaign, since they are dealing with this tragedy and observing Shabbat, which just ended. When I look at the name of the donors, there are Steins and Bergs, and there are Mohammeds, there are generic American names, and there are Asian ones. The shooter’s has been corrupted by his hatred for immigrants and Jews. It is only fitting that Americans of all backgrounds — immigrant, native-born, Jewish, atheist, Buddhist, Hindu, Christian, Muslim, etc. — are uniting aginst this hateful act. America is beautiful!
