Though a definitive legend of its founding has been lost to history, stories of visions, finding a crucifix, and other miracles have been common since the shrine was built in the 1950s.
#HeartsTogether Tree of Life Exhibit
The #HeartsTogether display is a digital catalog of all the art submissions sent to Tree of Life Or L’Simcha Congregation in Pittsburgh, PA in the wake of the October, 2018 mass shooting that took place there. This exhibit is part of the outpouring of support sent to Pittsburgh and the Jewish community affected by the attack.
Allegheny Cemetery’s Garden of Peace
Though the cemetery itself has no official religious affiliation, the statue of Christ reflects the prominence of Christianity in the surrounding community.
The Pittsburgh Crèche describes an image with which most Christians are familiar: baby Jesus in the manger. While most Crèches are small handcrafted objects, the Crèche in Pittsburgh is quite the opposite. Located in the US Steel Tower Plaza downtown, this larger than life nativity scene display uses 66,000 pounds of wood and clay to artistically represent the scene of Jesus’ birth in the manger.
