The Pittsburgh synagogue shooting was a mass shooting that occurred at the Tree of Life synagogue[1] in the Squirrel Hill neighbourhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on 27 October 2018, while Shabbat morning services were being held. Eleven people were killed, and seven were injured.

The sole suspect, 46-year-old Robert Gregory Bowers, was arrested and charged with 29 federal crimes and 36 state crimes. Using an online social network, Bowers posted anti-Semitic comments against the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) in which the Tree of Life congregation was a supporting participant.[2][3][4][5][6][7] Referring to Central American migrant caravans and immigrants to the United States, he posted shortly before the attack that "HIAS likes to bring invaders in that kill our people. I can't sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. Screw your optics, I'm going in."[8]

The shooting was the deadliest attack on the Jewish community in the United States.[9][10]

I suppose someone will say that it is anti-Semitic to say so?"
