Dialogue Institute Austin is deeply saddened and outraged by the mass shooting at Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. We grieve the loss of innocent lives – one more time after yet another tragic incident of gun violence. We are very concerned that this attack has occurred amid rising anti-semitism, racism, polarization and hatred. We stand with our Jewish friends, and whomever faces any kind of hatred. We remain committed to our mission to build bridges and extinguish prejudice and bias in our society.
