On October 27, 2018, worshipers at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA, were attacked in a senseless act of hatred. In response, local artist Barb Grossman and her family started “PGH Hand-Made Hearts” to make and place handmade hearts in public places as vivid reminders of the power of kindness. The mission of this project is to foster compassion for those impacted by acts of violence and hatred, as well as to discourage future acts of this nature.
Participants will make hearts with words of encouragement to place in libraries, lobbies, churches, mosques, synagogues, community centers, senior centers, auditoriums, at a bus stop, at the park, playground, on a hiking trail, etc.
The event is free to the public. RSVP on the Facebook page for the event.
