(Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - President Woodrow Wilson established June 14th as Flag Day in 1916.  Flag Day has always had a strong connection to our Commonwealth and City of Pittsburgh. 

From our nation’s very beginnings in Philadelphia, to Pittsburgh’s role as home of the National Flag Foundation, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in fact became the first U.S. State to celebrate Flag Day as a Holiday in June of 1937.  

At an event at the United Steelworkers Union headquarters downtown, Tree of Life Synagogue Rabbi Dr. Jeffery Myers spoke a message of love.

He wants people to stop using the word “hate”
