Pittsburgh news, Pennsylvania news.

A Pittsburgh synagogue where 11 people were killed in a mass fire last year invites young people from all over the world to submit works of art to cover the fencing surrounding the still closed building.

The artistic project open to artists aged 13 to 17 is called "#HeartsTogether: the art of rebuilding". The organizers say the Tree of Life synagogue is looking for "original and inspiring images and graphics" on windshields covering the perimeter fence.

Digital submissions are accepted until May 31st.

A truck driver who, according to authorities, has expressed his hatred against the Jews was indicted in the shooting on 27 October. He pleaded not guilty.
