Join the American Jewish Committee in honoring the memory of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting victims and standing up to antisemitism and all forms of hate by participating in the nationwide #ShowUpForShabbat campaign.

Last year, on October 27, we witnessed unspeakable horror at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue. The following weekend millions of people of all faiths rallied around AJC’s #ShowUpForShabbat initiative, packing synagogues in what became the largest-ever expression of solidarity with the American Jewish community.

On the one-year anniversary, AJC is calling on all people of good conscience to #ShowUpForShabbat. Let us come together to honor the victims and raise our collective voice for a world free of antisemitism, hate and bigotry.

Here’s how you can Participate:

1. Attend Shabbat services the weekend of Oct. 25-26.
Share your Shabbat plans on social media using the hashtag #ShowUpForShabbat.
Don’t usually attend services? Visit AJC.org/ShowUpForShabbat for help connecting to an area synagogue that will be welcoming guests.

2. Go to AJC.org/ShowUpForShabbat and add your name in support of this initiative.
Even if you are unable to attend services, you can still stand up to hate and antisemitism.

3. Urge others to join you.
Last year, countless religious leaders, diplomats, elected officials, celebrities, people of all faiths and people of no faith participated in #ShowUpForShabbat. You can build momentum by asking friends and allies to join you.

4. Dedicate October 27 to fighting antisemitism.
Join AJC in designating October 27 as an official Day of Action Against Antisemitism, a day for educating others about this hatred and advocating more robust measures to combat it.
