PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) — Pittsburgh continues to heal following the Oct. 27 Tree of Life Synagogue shooting that left 11 dead and six wounded.

On Friday, the City of Pittsburgh will hold a “Rally for Peace” in Point State Park at noon.

The event will begin with a one-minute moment of silence for peace and the 11 victims. Those unable to make the event – from those in Pittsburgh to others around the world – are invited to host their own moments of silence at 12 p.m. EST.

On Sunday, Congregation Beth Shalom will host a "Stronger Together" unity concert and food festival in response to the Tree of Life massacre.

The free "day of healing" will feature music from Avraham Fried, Lipa Schmeltzer and Shulem Lemmer and traditional Jewish foods in lieu of the previously scheduled Bnai Emunoh Chabad food festival.

It’s at 5915 Beacon St. in Squirrel Hill from 1 to 4 p.m.
