PITTSBURGH, Oct. 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The inaugural Eradicate Hate Global Summit will kick off in Pittsburgh, PA on October 18, 2021. It grew out of the deadliest anti-Semitic attack in U.S. history. In October 2018, a heavily armed gunman massacred worshipers from three different congregations at Pittsburgh's Tree of Life Synagogue.
