Hero Fund staff participated in the Pittsburgh-area speaker series at the Beth El Congregation of the South Hills Oct. 16. Hero Fund President Eric Zahren discussed how the Hero Fund came to be, founder Andrew Carnegie’s hopes for it, and, of course, the heroes.

Each session in the series is broadcasted over Zoom as well as providing for in-person audience members.

Synagogue board member Neil Ash invited the Hero Fund to the series after he saw the organization featured on 60 Minutes.

“I was thrilled to find out that you guys are right here in Pittsburgh,” Ash said at the event
