Shabbat Shi'ur - Secrets of the Homestead Hebrew Chapel (Jan. 5th, 2019)

Saturday, January 5, 2019

12:45 P.M. | Homestead Hebrew Chapel

The Homestead Hebrew Chapel on the second floor of Congregation Beth Shalom contains the yahrzeit plaques, war honor roll tablets, Torah scrolls, and other Judaica from the Homestead Hebrew Congregation (1894-1993). Typically these objects form the backdrop to the daily prayer services that take place in the room, but for an hour Tammy Hepps, a local historian and descendant of one of the community's founders, will foreground them to review the history of Homestead's Jewish community and the ways this room, like many such memory spaces throughout Pittsburgh, recalls the legacy of those who came before us.

This event is Free! If you plan to attend, please RSVP to Chris Hall at
