Dear Readers,

As a Pittsburgh-based magazine and student organization, the Fourth Wave will not post an article this Sunday.  Today is a day for us and all students and faculty at the University of Pittsburgh to attend memorial vigils, give of our time and resources, and stand with the Jewish community.  Our hearts are broken, and we anticipate a new level of activism to defend Pittsburgh’s identity as a bastion of peace and neighborliness.  Please consider donating directly to Tree of Life Synagogue, the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh, and the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, all of which make our country and world a better place.
