Mark Oppenheimer’s new book, "Squirrel Hill: The Tree of Life Synagogue Shooting and the Soul of a Neighborhood," is the definitive story of the October 27, 2018 shooting at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue.

The book is a portrait of a singular Jewish community, and a look at how all communities grieve and heal in the aftermath of tragedy.
