PITTSBURGH — When tragedy struck Uvalde, Texas, this week, leaders in Pittsburgh’s Jewish community jumped into action.

“When we heard about what was going on in Uvalde, what happened, for all of us as human beings, it just hit a core, that this is just wrong,” said Rabbi Ron Symons, the founding director of the Jewish Community Center’s Center for Loving Kindness.

The Center for Loving Kindness and the 10.27 Healing Partnership launched the “Build a Hug” initiative.
