The sanctuary inside The Temple, Atlanta's oldest synagogue

People across Georgia are continuing to grieve after a gunman walked into the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh on Saturday, opening fire on the congregation, killing 11 and wounding others.

For members of Atlanta’s Jewish community, this is especially hard because several have ties to Pittsburgh.

 

That includes Eric Robbins, the executive director of the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta.

 

 

 

Robbins speaks with GPB's Leah Fleming about his connection to the attack and how synagogues in Atlanta are preparing to prevent future tragedies.
