Classrooms Without Borders (Pittsburgh, Pa.) hosted the "Antisemitism, Hate and Social Responsibility" conference at Rodef Shalom Congregation on November 10-11, 2019 as a response to the attack at the Tree of Life synagogue on October 27, 2018. The conference was open to the public but designed to help academics, educators, students and clergy find ways to bring the lessons of October 27 into their work. Speakers included scholars and experts from across the country. Classrooms Without Borders (Pittsburgh, Pa.) was established in 2011 in association with the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh. The organization promotes universal human values and an understanding of antisemitism and contemporary hatred, and it connects educators to opportunities that will enrich learning in the classroom.

The October 27 Archive collects responses to an antisemitic attack in Pittsburgh, Pa. on October 27, 2018. These responses take many forms but share a motivating impulse. Each began in the mind and heart of someone who was moved by the events of that day and was compelled to create something meaningful from that feeling. By sharing these responses, those people chose to be vulnerable for the sake of a greater good. The October 27 Archive website was launched with the belief that sharing these responses with the world can provide an avenue for people all over the world to reflect, learn, and heal.
By entering this website, you agree to honor the spirit in which these responses were created and in which they are being shared with the world.
