Iconic Pittsburgh Steelers Logo Gets Jewish Star After Synagogue Shooting

The logo of the Pittsburgh Steelers was turned into a symbol of solidarity with Jews after the synagogue shooting that killed 11.

For many in the Steel City, football is religion. But someone summed up the city’s unity with its Jewish community by changing the iconic logo to include a Star of David.

Matthew Neal, a doctor in Pittsburgh who appears to have been involved in treating the wounded, shared the edited logo next to the words, “Stronger Than Hate.”

The Steelers play what will likely be an emotional game on Sunday afternoon at Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field, against the Cleveland Browns.

Several Steelers players tweeted their support for Pittsburgh, Sports Illustrated reported, including JuJu Smith-Schuster, Antonio Brown and Jerome Bettis.
