Book Discussion – Squirrel Hill: The Tree of Life Synagogue Shooting and the Soul of a Neighborhood with Author Mark Oppenheimer

November 8 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The 2021 Ann and Stephen Kaufman Jewish Book & Arts Festival is making a stop at Houston Congregation for Reform Judaism! On Monday night, November 8 at 7:30pm, author Mark Oppenheimer will present on his book, Squirrel Hill: The Tree of Life Synagogue Shooting and the Soul of a Neighborhood! This program can be watched in-person in the HCRJ sanctuary or online.

Mark Oppenheimer’s new book is a poignant exploration of the aftermath of the 2018 murder of 11 Jews as they worshipped at the Tree of Life Synagogue. Oppenheimer, who is the writer and host of the podcast, Unorthodox, beautifully captures the vibrancy and resilience that characterize Squirrel Hill, providing inspiration to any place burdened with discrimination, hate and loss.
