From a distance, the Tree of Life Synagogue now looks like another American crime scene.But just at the yellow-tape barrier, the closest spot to the horror of what happened here Saturday, people have left hundreds of bouquets of flowers, cards and posters with a repeated message: We come in grief and solidarity; we speak for a community that will resist the hatred that killed these victims.Squirrel Hill has been described as an American shtetl, but there is a similar sense of pride, at once inward-looking but outwardly confident, in the African-American neighborhood of Oakland, or the Italian-American district of Mt. Washington, where I lived, or the neighborhoods where Catholic parishes were understood to be Polish, or German, or Croatian or Irish but always part of the Pittsburgh family.On the Tree of Life website, a message from Rabbi Jeffrey Myers had been posted on July 19, and it was still there Sunday night.
