On April 7, the day before Passover, the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh is asking Pittsburghers to turn on lights and go outside to applaud with “Illumination Ovation” to recognize first responders, medical professionals and health care aides, sanitation workers, grocery store employees, food service workers and delivery drivers, and everyone working on the front lines of the pandemic.

“We’re wishing Chag Pesach Sameach, Happy Easter and Ramadan Mubarak to our Pittsburgh heroes who are putting their lives at risk every day to keep the rest of us safe.”

Josh Sayles, director of the Jewish Federation’s Community Relations Council

The Jewish Federation was inspired to join Illumination Ovation by all of the people putting their lives at risk who go unrecognized, including at Jewish agencies.

“Lighting our city is something you can do at a distance,” says Adam Hertzman, the Federation’s director of marketing. “It’s also a beautiful thing to do before we light the candles for this Jewish holiday.”
