The first installment of SING A NEW LIGHT featuring Magevet of Yale University and Hillelujah of Hillel Jewish University Center of Pittsburgh,. This past week’s torah portion was about people coming together to rebuild a temple, very fitting to start a project of rebuilding and re – dedication in spirit and song as from the generosity of 283 donors. There was beautiful music, great food, conversation and sharing, even a lesson in proper #terribletowel swinging technique ensued. The program was also supported by the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh, Slifka Center , Moishe House, Chatham University and New Light Congregation
With less than 2 weeks away from our first SING A NEW LIGHT event – we want to take a moment thank both the Slifka Center for Jewish Life at Yale for sponsoring Magevet’s trip to Pittsburgh and The Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh for also lending their support. We are extremely grateful and so very blessed to have such wonderful partners. looking forward to great weekend. Tickets for the 2-23-20 are available HERE.
I woke up this morning in Pittsburgh after a challenging night spent on Megabus from NYC. Unusual traffic downtown at such an early hour, when it is usually desolate. Are these news reporters, Pitt’s homecoming or the remnants of the Slate convention making their way home. Uber costs $36 to get home, it’s usually $11 so something’s up. Is this what happens when the world descends on our little beloved town? Have to wonder if this hustle and bustle is temporary or now the norm. Finishing up the website and fighting with technology. At least something’s never change.
