A rabbi from Pittsburgh's Tree of Life synagogue said he won't meet with President Donald Trump who is heading to the city Tuesday in the wake of the massacre at the house of worship this weekend.
Rabbi Jeffrey Myers -- who escaped the gunfire that killed 11 on Saturday morning -- at first said the president was welcome, but since he made that statement, he "received a lot of email... [from people who] are not happy with those words," Myers told CNN Tuesday.
"The thing that saddens me is those emails also contain hate, and it just continues in this vicious cycle ... That's just not the solution," Myers said. "We need to be better than this."
"I have no plans at this time for any involvement" with Trump's visit, Myers told CNN. "My attention will be with the family. I have a funeral, and I must tend to their needs."

Does anybody here know if Pres. Trump has left DC for Pittsburgh yet?
“The thing that saddens me is those emails also contain hate, and it just continues in this vicious cycle ... That’s just not the solution,”
But cowering to the intimidation is? What a wuss.
a real profile in courage /s
This is very sad.
Short hand for death threats.
Well I think the fact the Rabbi made a specific point of mentioning the E-mails he received is a good thing, it is something that exposes the “cry bullies” on the left.
However the Rabbi is not doing himself any favors by capitulating to the left.
Trump should send Ivanka and Jared, and put an open invitation that the Rabbi is welcome anytime to meet with him to discuss how to end antisemitism.
The radical progressive Mob got to Rabbi Jeffrey Myers.
Notice how ABC found one Rabbi.
And of course, that’s what will be appended to every report on Trump’s visit.
And the MSM still cannot understand why we loathe, detest, and consider them our most mortal enemy?
We should have some compassion, though.
What else can low IQ marshmallow majors do except pretend they actually are smart in front of cameras (where the camera operator is undoubtedly much better at pretty much everything)?
Or is he afraid of the perceived negative impact on the bottom line. Hey, blood’s thicker than water, but business is business.
This Rabbi must not know or care that Trump is the best president for Israel and the Jews in history. Disgusting.
STORY DOES NOT SUPPORT HEADLINE!
Glad I read it before condemning the Rabbi.
Not to be totally insensitive or crude, but it’s like them being marched to the trains to head to Auschwitz all over again.
Jews need to learn to stop letting fascists push them around.
We have seen how liberals can make a spectacle out of a solemn occasion like a funeral.
Crapbag Eddie Munster is attacking Trump on birthright. Guess Bergoglio threatened him.
You would think the Rabbi would see the REAL party of hate..which is the Democrat Party..but he rolls over because he is most likely a Democrat himself
So who asked the Rabbi to meet in the first place?
Jeez! What a “look at me...”
If a minister of Southern Baptist church in a similar situation had critisized a visit from Obama it would have been because the minister and congregation was racist.
Oh, look. An intolerant self loathing Jewish person. Suppose there’s any relation to similar folks in holly-weird?
