Celebrating the legacy
of the Jewish community
from the most famous steel
town in the U.S.

Gathered here are records, stories, photos, and memories about this once-thriving community, covering the earliest traces of Jewish life in this historically important town, to reminiscences from the last generation. This website takes its name from the community's synagogue, the Homestead Hebrew Congregation Rodef Shalom, which was organized in 1894 and closed in 1993.
