Comforting Conversations

During this time of uncertainty surrounding the Coronavirus, the Center for Loving Kindness – JCC Pittsburgh presents a new series called “Comforting Conversations”.

Passover Through Art, Jewish Values and Loving Kindness
Passover Through Art, Jewish Values and Loving Kindness

Join Rabbi Ron Symons and Melissa Hiller from the JCC PGH Center for Loving Kindness in a dynamic exploration of Passover art, Jewish values and loving kindness.  In this celebratory season, when many of us are accustomed to sitting at large tables with family, friends, food and tradition, this year’s Passover Seder experience will be more quiet for all of us.  That being said, just as the charoset of slavery is sweet, so too can our seders in the midst of Coronavirus be joyous.

Our conversations bring us together in communal exploration and kindness and might serve as conversation starters for your Passover table.
