Where a 3,000-year-old tradition meets a 5-year-old’s curiosity.

Tree of Life ▪ Or L’Simcha Congregation is a traditional, progressive and egalitarian congregation based in Pittsburgh’s Squirrel Hill neighborhood.

We offer a warm and welcoming environment where even the oldest Jewish traditions become relevant to the way our members live today. From engaging services, social events, family-friendly activities and learning opportunities to support in times of illness or sorrow, we match the old with the new to deliver conservative Jewish tradition that’s accessible, warm and progressive.

If you haven’t visited us yet, we welcome the chance to introduce you to our community!
