The Pittsburgh synagogue shooting in October 2018 was the deadliest attack on Jewish people in American history. For Adam Reinherz, award-winning journalist and senior staff writer at the Pittsburgh Jewish Chronicle, it was also something much more personal. In the years since the attack, Adam has reported on everything—from the tragedy to its fallout to the shooter’s recent death sentence—across dozens of articles, for the sake of both his Jewish community and the larger world. In this week’s episode, Adam and Yehuda Kurtzer discuss what it means to approach a story that holds both particular and universal resonance.
