Celebrating Rodef Shalom

An OnQ Special Report

This historic Reform Jewish Temple in the Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh is celebrating two major milestones - the 100th anniversary of its building on Fifth Avenue and the 150th birthday of the Congregation. OnQ's Michael Bartley takes you inside Rodef Shalom for a firsthand look at the architectural details of the sanctuary and a multi-million addition which includes new offices, adult learning center, classrooms, gift shop and renovated pre-school. He also talks with leaders and members of the congregation about the spirited past, the present and the progressive future of Rodef Shalom.

Winner: 2008 Golden Quill Award (Press Club of Western Pennsylvania) for Outstanding Public Affairs/Documentary
