The Rev. Michael Foley became rector of the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer in Squirrel Hill in February 2014. In the immediate aftermath of the October 27 attack, he wrote a series of sermons and reflections about the attack for his congregants. One of his congregants, Emma Swift Lee, also produced a large vinyl banner reading, "We Love Our Jewish Neighbors." The banner was erected in the grass at the Darlington Road entrance to the church, just down the block from the Jewish Community Center of Greater Pittsburgh.
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.
