Led by Jhos, Julie, Rabbi Lynn, and Lior Tonight Sunday, Oct. 28 - 8:00pm Dear Chochmat HaLev Community Let’s gather tonight with prayer, music, poetry, and connection to support each other, to mourn, to share our grief, fear, anger and despair. Together, we have the strength to respond acts of violence and hate with loving resistance. Together we can remember our blessings in the midst of so many curses. Together we can hold each other… and open our hearts and arms to all of the vulnerable communities who experience the reverberations of violence and hate that touched us yesterday. With love, Jhos, Julie, R. Lynn, and LiorGoFundMe for  the local Chevrot Kadisha groups of Pittsburgh
