OneTable Pittsburgh is the local hub of a national program that "helps 'pre-family' young adults create their own authentic Shabbat dinner experiences, with the ultimate goal of forming a lifelong Friday night practice," according to the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh. OneTable provides financial assistance and an online scheduling platform to help encourage community gatherings. OneTable also provides spiritual and educational resources for various themed gatherings throughout the year. Following the attack at the Tree of Life synagogue on October 27, 2018, the Anti-Defamation League and Repair the World partnered with OneTable, Be'chol Lashon, and Keshet to create a packet of materials for "Together At The Table." The packet was intended to guide Shabbat table discussions about the attack.

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.
