The now famous red and white ‘Kidnapped’ signs, bringing attention to the the plight of 222 hostages kidnapped by Hamas in the recent massacre on Simchas Torah, are being projected onto the side of the Jewish Children’s Museum in Crown Heights.
Organized by Shmuli Kopfstein from Crown Heights, the large display rotates the signs which depict the names of hostages who remain in Hamas captivity in Gaza.
“At the corner of Eastern Parkway and Kingston Avenue, right next to Chabad Lubavitch Headquarters at 770 Eastern Parkway, we show the world that the Crown Heights community cares,” Kopfstein said.
He thanked Devorah Halberstam, Rabbi Yerachmiel Benjaminson and Rabbi Sholom Ber Baumgarten of the Museum for their assistance.
The initiative is part of a larger project, which will see large projections of the signs in various locations around New York, with one already set up in Miami.
