26 Days 6 Hours Ago

Arrived today. Shirts for tennis wear (can't hack cotton!) to remember and honor those impacted directly by the tragedy of last year. Violence is never a necessary action. Find the peace and beauty and wonder and joy wherever you can. It can be difficult some days with ups and downs for all of us, but we can do it! 💖💖💖 #treeoflifesynagogue #strongerthanhate #pittsburghproud

Remembering those who lost their lives in this senseless act of violence. #treeoflife #treeoflifesynagogue #neverforget #pittsburghlove #community #panuccio #re

"I believe we can all be beacons of hope, that we can be accepting people. Love and acceptance are stronger than hate." Humbled to hear from #pittsburgh #police Chief Scott Schubert, who acted heroically to save lives when #treeoflifesynagogue was attacked. His call is to notice bias, hatred, and xenophobia and to answer them with intergroup relationships. #leadership #compassion #strongerthanhate #antihate #prolove

My Wear Orange t-shirt has come in the mail! Just in time. Along with the many other things happening, June 7-9 is #wearorange Weekend, with Friday being the especially important day as it is National Gun Violence Awareness Day. Since the shooting at my family synagogue in Pittsburgh, I have become even more passionate about this issue. I was thinking that in addition to wearing orange on Friday, perhaps all the talented people out there on Instagram could post orange — art, photographs, objects, whatever. Spread the word. Let’s blanket IG with orange to show the world how we feel. 🧡 Thousands of people across the U.S. will be participating in Wear Orange weekend events sponsored by Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action to honor the 100 Americans shot and killed *every day* and the hundreds more wounded. The goal is to elevate the voice of all Americans who demand an end to gun violence and to continue the movement’s momentum. 🧡 Nevada and New Mexico now have state comprehensive background-check laws. In Colorado, Everytown won an incredibly hard-fought battle to enact a Red Flag law. Under the law, family members or law enforcement will be able to petition a court to intervene and temporarily suspend someone’s access to guns if there’s evidence that person poses a serious threat to themselves or others. 🧡 I dream of a country where children are not scared to go to school, where people can pray in peace, and we break the chokehold the NRA gone-rogue has on gun policy with its political contributions. The majority of Americans want stronger gun laws and to ban assault weapons. Even NRA members are for stronger gun laws. There must be a way for us to enact legislation like New Zealand and Australia have done. It looks like state governments are picking up the slack while our national government fails miserably in protecting its citizens. 🧡 Please consider wearing or posting orange on June 7. 🧡 . . . #wearorange #wearorangeday @everytown @momsdemand #banassaultweapons #endgunviolence #thisisamerica #toomanyshootings #howmanyhavetodie #vote #vote2020 #electwomen @delgadoforcongress @chuckschumer @kirstengillibrand @jvn #writersofinstagram #deborahartman

Been traveling... took the train to Pittsburgh for an immigration law, social and economic justice conference with colleagues from across the country. Was inspiring and a much needed regroup; but, must admit, my sense of hope is feeling about as tattered as this cracked and peeling wooden star hanging outside the Tree of Life – Or L'Simcha Congregation. I visited Tree of Life after the conference—had to go and pay my respects...add a stone in remembrance of my eleven, senselessly slain brothers and sisters... had to go and sit with the pain and hurt that our country/ world is carrying... had to weep in this once tranquil garden. Sometimes there is no antidote but to grieve... and then, to somehow pick oneself up and keeping going. Hold on... eyes on the prize. #love #justice #equality #dignityforall #humanrights #treeoflifesynagogue #enough #notonemore #coexist #evolve #themarchcontinues (listen to Link in bio)

Tree of Life Synagogue display all complete. Was an honor to be asked to participate in this mosaic memorial display. 💙 We will always choose love over fear. 💙 I was asked to participate in a community mosaic for the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh in memory of those who lost their lives. For my contribution I used an amethyst heart focal point, surrounded by blue kyanite, and created it in memory of my mom. The installation sought to bring a sense of love and community, and to stand in unison against heinous acts. - - - - - - #contemporaryartist #zenart #mosaicart #mosaicsbysusan #jewishartist #mixedmediaart #amethyst #treeoflifesynagogue #pittsburghart

30 year old expired film; 4x5 Kodak pro 100, I took this months ago with my view camera of the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pa. this was apparently the last day to hold the memorials when I took this image. This was of course the synagogue where a mass shooting occurred back in October. I have had this image for months and have gotten around to scanning it just today. #pittsburgh #strongerthanhate #treeoflife #4x5 #viewcamera #filmphotography #expiredfilm #love

I finally got it! The lightbulb moment when two of my pieces on connecting the #pittsburgh community in the aftermath of the #chabadofpoway and #treeoflifesynagogue attacks. Despite its timely relevance, it was rejected several times while one editor saw its value and worked with me to refine it. Never ever give up! Link in the bio. #amwriting

Ay!!! So NOOOO bullshit.... it’s time to charge the parents of school shooters. K-12. My thought process is if ya kid got mental issues you definitely are aware of that, secondly if you decide to have firearms in a home with a child with these issues then you gotta take responsibility. It can’t be your kid gets to go into school and end other young lives/futures, take their own, and nobody has to answer for all the pain they caused. Folks are in jail right now for a lot less. Ie the black woman who was put in jail for falsifying her school district so her KIDS could go to a better school. . . . . . #politics #whitesupremacy #gregorybush #blacklivesmatter #protest #love #supportchuaungo #squirrelhill #usa #pittsburgh #pittsburghsynagogue #massshootings #synagogue #murder #prayers #florida #cesarsayoc #domesticterrorism #donaldtrump #trump #cnn #foxnews #magabomber #life #change #robertbowers #maga #treeoflifesynagogue #repost #policebrutality

I’m Mary Poppins y’all! ☔️ The weather in Budapest is definitely not something I hoped it’d be, nor do I really know how to make it work. It’s absolutely challenging to even step outside the building. But I made some friends and, with a little help, took a couple of pictures. I ended up having lots of fun, despite the cold and water in my shoes, and the fact someone robbed me from my umbrella in the middle of the Great Synagogue! The nerve on some people 🙄 Have you ever been robbed while traveling? It was the first for me. 📸 @weawboonyam #treeoflifesynagogue #followmetobudapest

The 1st sabbath after Passover, we bake #shlisselchallah 🗝🔑Challah either shaped like a key, or with a key inside of it(what I grew up with). Here is some info on the tradition, as well as info on the practice of #countingtheomer (from “#pasukpost” on fb. In the week after the white supremacist/alt right attack on the #poway synagogue and with #ramadan starting next week, it is with great gratitude and pride that I share my culture with the world...and continue to build connections and stand in solidarity with my Muslim sisters & brothers and others facing oppression, systemic violence and at risk. My beloved Rabbi Ariana Katz shared a quote from “Reb” #starhawk that @hinenubaltimore posted in the aftermath of the #treeoflifesynagogue massacre that speaks volumes now “Solidarity is based on the principal that we are willing to put ourselves at risk for each other” - meditating on this and on ways I can be a stronger ally and leverage my privilege to advance the work and potentially keep people safe. Also, to be more a stronger leader in the communities my identities make me part of. Ending the photos in this post with an unsettling but spot-on comic from the prolific @elivalley ... with a msg and warning of which I extend to my Jewish brethren, some of whom I personally know are being willfully obtuse... recent events have reminded me of the magnitude of the work ahead. #solidarityforever #christchurch #srilankaeasterbombings #blessedbe #kabbalah #parnassa #keychallah #starhawkquotes #jewwitch #shabbatshalom #שבתשלום #ramadanisbeautiful #baltimorejewishlife #elivalley #ashkenazi #jewish #beltaneblessings #intersectionality

This evening, @realmikeholohan and @tatertotsurprise joined others in reading the names of children murdered during the Holocaust. The memorial service organized by @hilleljuc created space to reflect on the lives lost and the futures unrealized. Our grief and anger over the terrorist attacks at Tree of Life and Chabad of Poway synagogues demand that we confront the sources of antisemitism today. Change begins with us.

Tonight starts the holiday of Yom Hashoah. I made a song called So Many People that was written and filmed in krakow Poland as well as the concentration camps of Auschwitz-Birkenau where most of my family members were killed. I rode a bike 55 miles from Auschwitz to krakow on ride of the living , and also played a festival in a 19th century synagogue. Our best fight against anti-semitism is educating and engaging people through new ways that haven’t been done before. With 2 attacks in Synagogues in the past 6 months, we need to speak louder than ever. Thanks to @edjansen for his film direction and for @jcckrakow on creating the opportunity to accompany my mother @chaiaiscool to be in the video with my great aunt, Dvorah. Please tag some people who need to see this. Never Again.

Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, is also known as Yom HaZicharon, Day We Remember Them. From sundown on May 1st until sundown on May 2, 2019, we remember and memorialize the 6 million Jews brutally massacred during the Holocaust. We remember. Since they do not have graves, we say their names. All of them. Especially in light of the intense increase in antisemitism and hate violence worldwide, it is incumbent upon us to never forget - to ensure that such genocide never happens again. Hate against one is violence against all. We are all humans sharing this one planet. We must remember that the Shoah wasn’t 6 million dead people in one instant moment. It was one Jew, followed by one Jew, followed by one Jew, over and over, 6 million times; atrocities witnessed by many, years before it stopped. We say their names in order to honor and remember that each and every person who was murdered in the Shoah was a human being, with a name, and with a life. Zachor. Remember. Let there be Peace on Earth. • The 1st image is a quilted piece of silk from which I cut out the Hebrew letters for the word “Zachor.” The 2nd image is of the same silk Hebrew letters on 2 Holocaust-surviving Torahs and the mantle covers I made for them.

Fuel of hate... (Online Trump) - The shooting at a synagogue in Southern California, combined with Joe Biden's re-introduction of the president's description of "fine people on both sides" are igniting a closer examination of the rise of white nationalism and domestic terrorism in America. - Shooting at Chabad synagogue near San Diego is the third attack of its kind in the last six weeks and the fourth mass attack on a house of worship in the last year. - Trump refuses to recognize that his hateful, racist and anti-Muslim rhetoric is influencing and encouraging white nationalists and neo-nazis to shoot up places of worship. #donthecon #inciterinchief #trumphates #hatecrimes #bothsides #treeoflifesynagogue #powaysynagogueshooting #chabadsynagogue #christchurchshooting #charlottesville #whitenationalism #whitesupremacism #domesticterrorism #religioustolerance #cantwealljustgetalong @mikeluckovich #robrogers #benjennings #walthandelsman #jimmymargulies @adamzyglis #stevebreen #natebeeler @matt_davies_draws @murphycartoons #cartoons #coffeeandcourtney #comicrelief #comics #cartooncurator #safecomicspace #politicalcartoons #instadaily

"Everyone deserves a safe place of worship. I started this sketch last week after hearing of the Easter shooting in Sri Lanka. I was praying for my brothers and sisters of all faiths who encounter hate, violence and persecution because of what they believe. What happened to the churches in Sri Lanka, to the mosques in Christchurch, to the Tree of Life synagogue last year and just this weekend to the Chabad synagogue in San Diego should never happen. My heart aches over the brokenness, senselessness and pure horror of these moments. All I can pray is God have mercy; protect my peace-serving friends of all faiths: May your Peace and light triumph on this day and all days over the evil and darkness that we see."

My dad reached over for my moms hand and said “ I’m glad your here.” Tonight we are at a vigil at our synagogue in Atlanta to remember those who lost their lives in the awful tragedy that occurred at Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh yesterday. My father grew up in that synagogue. That is where he had his bar mitzvah as a young man. This violence has to stop. We need to love more and be there for one another. . . . . . #treeoflife #treeoflifesynagogue #pittsburgh #squirrelhill #strongerthanhate #burgh #synagogue #love

IN MEMORY OF THE VICTIMS OF THE “TREE OF LIFE” SYNAGOGUE. This painting reads in Hebrew”etz chaiim”, “tree of life”. This is part of a Sefer Torah series I painted a while back.
