Israeli Culture Teva Shed

IN 1908…

In 1908, city kids didn’t have many opportunities to escape Pittsburgh’s stultifying summer heat and throat-choking pollution. That summer, the countryside became accessible when a group of social reformers in the Jewish community founded the Emma Farm Association, a health-and-wellness facility in Harmarville.

Children, and sometimes their parents, would travel by train into the great outdoors and spend a few weeks breathing clean air, bulking up on nutritious food, hiking, swimming, playing sports and enjoying nature.
