A campaign started by 2 young women from Pittsburgh to encourage doing good deeds in honor of Lori Kaye, who was murdered in a shooting at the Chabad Center of Poway, is gaining momentum.
Chavi Leeds and Shira Weinstein were devastated by the news of the shooting in Poway, California on the last day of Pesach, and decided they needed to do “something real,” in response, they told COLlive.
Inspired by The Lubavitcher Rebbe’s push for the Moment of Silence in schools, which emphasizes an awareness that there is a Higher power and to be good, and be good to others, the “Pause for Poway” campaign is about doing kindness and goodness for others, to spread the light.
“One person affects his family, his family affects his community, his community affects his country, and his country affects the world,” Leeds said. “You change yourself, you change the world. Start the Chain of Kindness.”
