The quilts of SaraRand winglionaren’t just stunningly beautiful. Often given as get-well gifts for ailing Kosacks, they are also the fruits of a caring, Progressive society. And since everybody gets a say — all are invited to inscribe them with personal messages - they are metaphors for Democracy itself! No wonder the quilting sisters are such an integral part of this unusual political forum. As the Big Lebowskiwould say, they "really tie the room together."

On Monday (yes, I know this is late!) Kim received the most beautiful gift she has ever had.
Sara R and Winglion worked for weeks, with no thought for themselves, filled with determination and love for a woman they had never met except through my own inadequate attempts to describe her here, on a quilt from this incredible, stunning, heartwarming, beautiful, amazing community.
When I post here, the words "Thank you" are never far from my lips. I have thanked you for advice, I have thanked you for support, I have thanked you (far, far too often) for donations.
On Saturday October 27, 2018 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Tree of Life Synagogue (TOL), also known as L’Simcha Congregation, Dor Hadash and New Light Congregation were holding Saturday morning Shabbat services in the Tree of Life Synagogue building. TOL rents space to Dor Hadash and New Light Congregation. All three congregations were present that day. No one could have known the biggest anti-Semitic hate crime in American history was about to unfold:
A 46-year-old man armed with a Colt AR-15 SP1 (an AR-15 style semi-automatic rifle) and three Glock .357 SIG handguns.
