‘This Is Us’ Pays Tribute To Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting Victims Tonight

By Bruce Haring, Dominic Patten


As America reels from the massacre in Pittsburgh this past weekend, This Is Us paid an homage to the city where much of the Dan Fogelman created series takes place.

At the end of Tuesday’s “Kamsahamnida” episode on NBC, a titled card went up addressing the murders of 11 people in the Tree of Life synagogue on October 27. Now facing the death penalty, suspect  Robert Bowers’ vile action was the worst concentrated case of anti-semitism in American history.
