DEAR PIE TEAM!
We had a very touching and heartwarming day baking pies today with students from 4th, 6th, 7th and 8th grades at the Heilicher Jewish Day School in St. Louis Park! The pies will be delivered this weekend to four different Shabbat (the Jewish Sabbath) at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh where the tragic shooting occurred. As I worked with two young students wrapping pies, I overheard one saying to the other, "This is the longest I've ever gotten along with you!" They were both amazed by the power of pie. What I loved was how the students wanted to see the famous Ms. Rose and to meet her personally.:-) And of course, I couldn't always offer that, because there she was behind the camera!
We were taped by Golden Valley's Cable Channel 12 (CCX) and by KARE 11 (which we expect to be aired at 10:00pm 2/6/2019).
Each pie will be sent with a touching letter, written straight from the heart, by one of the students. We wish Rose and Wendy Goldberg much strength and faith as they journey to Pittsburgh to deliver pies made with incredible love. And behind all that love is the love from each one of you.
