Faith says, “As someone who has lived in the greater Pittsburgh area for over 25 years and has sung with several Jewish choirs (as part of inter-faith choirs) over the years, I was heartbroken the day the Tree of Life attack happened. It is important to share these stories and learn some of the history.”
Rauh Jewish Archives at the Heinz History Center
“The attack was a fixed event, with a beginning and an end. Its aftermath will continue forever.” – October 27 Archive
The October 27 Archive website is a living, digital repository of items collected documenting the support for Pittsburgh’s Jewish community from people around the world after the deadliest attack on a Jewish community in U.S. history. The website includes historical information about the three congregations, scans and photographs of physical objects left at the site, and oral histories from some Western Pennsylvanians who share their histories and reflections about the attack.
