Missing McKeesport tells the story of the Jewish community of McKeesport, the Pennsylvania town that in its steel-making heyday thrived with a population of 55,000, four synagogues – as many as seven, some say – and a multitude of Jewish-owned businesses catering to the needs of its citizenry.

This feature-length documentary film draws on the resources of the Rauh Jewish History Program & Archives at the Detre Library & Archives, preserving and sharing the story of McKeesport’s past through the personal accounts of the sons and daughters of the immigrants who settled there.

The film premiere will be followed by an in-person Q&A with the film’s creator, McKeesport-native Sam Zolten.


Tickets to the film are included with regular museum admission, which is good all day. Space is limited, so please register in advance. History Center Members may either register in advance and pay a discounted admission fee or enter for free on the day of the film. Money raised through advance registration will be used to preserve archival records of the McKeesport Jewish community donated by Temple B’nai Israel and others.
