In a small circle in front of the entrance to The White Theatre at the Jewish Community Center is this piece by Kansas City artist Rita Blitt. It represents a celebration of the good and the joy in life and, in the process, overcoming hate and evil. "L'Chaim: To Life" took on a deeper meaning after the tragic shootings that took place at the JCC in April of 2014.
