On Nov. 5, 2018, the University of Pittsburgh organized a vigil on the lawn between the Cathedral of Learning and the Heinz Memorial Chapel, bringing together approximately 3,000 administrators, faculty, staff, students, and other members of the campus community to memorialize the victims of the October 27 attack. The vigil included remarks from Mayor Bill Peduto, University of Pittsburgh Chancellor Patrick Gallagher, the Jewish Federation of Pittsburgh's Rabbi Danny Schiff, and Islamic Center of Pittsburgh Executive Director Wasi Mohamed. It also included performances from a cappella groups The Songburghs and C Flat Run, including the original song "Stronger Than Hate" co-written by Harry Lebovitz and Konstantine Deyev. Before the vigil, the Student Government Board distributed more than 10,000 of these "Stronger Than Hate" t-shirts throughout campus.
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.
