Pittsburgh's Jewish History

Thursday, October 26, 2023

1:00pm - 4:00pm

The tour will begin at the Heinz History Center, where participants can view archival materials related to Pittsburgh's Jewish history, as well as documentation from the cross-cultural community response to the October 27, 2018 synagogue shooting. From there, the tour will visit the former Irene Kaufman Settlement House auditorium in the Hill District and learn about the Curtaineers, an integrated theater troupe created in the 1940s and 1950s in response to a shift in neighborhood demographics. The auditorium is now home to a community arts space called ACH Clear Pathways. The tour will follow Murray Avenue through Squirrel Hill, showing the evolution of the once predominately Jewish business district with the arrival of AAPI immigrants over the past two decades. The final stop will be The Rotunda Collaborative in East Liberty/Highland Park, which is a gorgeous former synagogue being converted into a multi-use community arts space.
