Irwin Harris is a lifelong resident of Pittsburgh, PA. Irwin began attending Tree of Life’s Men’s Club in 2005 and became President in 2008. Irwin was honored in 2009 as Tree of Life Men’s Club, Man of the Year. In 2015 he became President of the Tri-State Region of the FJMC.
Regularly attending Friday night and Sunday morning services have become two of the most meaningful parts of the week. Irwin serves as Secretary of the Tree of Life Congregation.
Although Irwin was not in the building on that fateful Shabbat, he immediately dove in to help and dealt with over 60 media requests that came over the next three days, including Good Morning America who was waiting when he arrived home from Sunday morning minyan.
He is most proud of his 31 year marriage to Rose and their daughter Samantha who resides in the Hells Kitchen area of Manhattan.
