The Faculty, Candidates and Board Members of the Pittsburgh Psychoanalytic Center wish to extend our condolences and deepest sympathy to the Jewish Community of Pittsburgh for the horrible tragedy at the Tree of Life Synagogue. As you face the unspeakable loss and trauma of this atrocity that should have never happened, we are in solidarity with you, love you and cherish you in our community. In psychoanalysis, we work for the ultimate triumph of love and creativity over hate and destructiveness. The Jewish people are one of the good things of the earth, bringing peace and humanity to a troubled world. We are honored to have you in our Pittsburgh community. We condemn hatred of how one worships, where one was born, the color of one’s skin, whom and how one loves and one’s gender identification. We condemn all antisemitism and all racism, bigotry, discrimination and chauvinism and hope that we can all work together to build a better world. Violent acts such as this wound everyone, not only those toward whom the violence was aimed. Never again.
