Pulitzer Winners Reported On Synagogue Massacre, Give Prize To Congregation

The staff of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported on the mass shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue and they won a Pulitzer Prize for their work. The journalistic honor comes with $15,000, but they didn’t know what to do with the money because they say dividing it between those working during the breaking news “didn’t seem right.”

So publisher John Robinson Block suggested donating it to Tree of Life so the congregation could repair the building where 11 people were killed and that’s what they did. Rabbi Jeffrey Myers expressed his thanks saying, “Tree of Life is very proud the Post-Gazette was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for their incredible work” and that they are “grateful for their loving and compassionate gift to aid in our rebuilding.”
