History

Shaare Torah was founded in 1880 in the Hill District section of Pittsburgh and moved to its present location in the Squirrel Hill section of the city in the 1950s. Rabbi Moshe Shimon Sivitz ZT”L served as the Rabbi of the Shaare Torah from 1888 until his passing in 1936. Rabbi Baruch Poupko ZT”L served as Rabbi of the congregation from 1942 until 1996, serving as Senior Rabbi from 1986-1994 when Rabbi Moshe Kletenik Shlit” served as Rabbi together with him.

Shaare Torah has served the Pittsburgh Jewish community through many different eras. It has always been at the forefront of matters relating to the members of the community, from Jewish education, to Kashrut, to the State of Israel, and other areas. Shaare Torah works hand in hand and side by side with the other shuls and organizations in our community to enhance the Jewish life of the members of the congregation, all the members of the Jewish community, and the citizens of the city of Pittsburgh and its metropolitan region.
