The Hillel JUC was a vital, influential lifeline both during my college career and after. J'Burgh was a fantastically run program; an essential player in my life as a transitioned from college to post-grad. The director was key in creating a cultural and social atmosphere, filling the program with engaging activities. From the bowling team to outings in Pittsburgh, J'Burgh truly created an adult social group, fulfilling my intellectual, spiritual and social needs

I participated with J'Burgh on various sports teams. In addition, I have used J'Burgh to connect with the Jewish community and engage my Judaism. Last week, I joined together with about 40 other grad students and young professionals to go to Yom Kippur services and then a breakfast. It's nice to have a family here.

J'Burgh does great things for the Pittsburgh Young Adult Jewish community by allowing us the flexibility to plan the type of events that our particular demographic needs and wants. The group draws in great people and makes the city more dynamic-- it also allows people to feel connected to other post-college Jewish 20-somethings and 30-somethings in town.

J'Burgh fills a tremendous need in Pittsburgh to provide programming for Jewish 20somethings. I have had nothing but positive experiences with J'Burgh and through my involvement I now feel that I have very strong connections within the entire Jewish community of Pittsburgh. From cultural event, Shabbat dinner, social events, like movie and poker nights, there is something for everyone. Encompassing both graduate students and young professionals, J'Burgh has allowed me to meet a great mix of people.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The inclusiveness and diversity of the members. With the number of people coming to J'Burgh events continuing to grow I am meeting new people all of the time. Each person bring a wonderful new dynamic to J'Burgh!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Amazing! David Katz has made J'Burgh a well known organization in Pittsburgh. His dedication and commitment inspires members to have active roles within J'Burgh. It says a lot about both J'Burgh and David that so many people keep coming back to events.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

become the ultimate model of how to create and run a successful organization that serves Jewish grad students and young professionals. The planning board could travel to other cities, preferably tropical, and share what we have learned through J'Burgh.

Ways to make it better...

I was able to have cheese on my burgers at J'Burgh events. Joking. I would like my friends in other cities to have something like J'Burgh so that I didn’t always feel like I was bragging when I talked about how great J’Burgh is.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Perpetuating the organization once current members either graduate and leave Pittsburgh or 'age out' of J'Burghs demographics. It will be important to continue attracting new members.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I heart J'Burgh

J'Burgh is an innovative program that provides Jewish young professionals, like myself, and grad students an instant opportunity to get involved in the Jewish community and to connect with peers. J'Burgh really does help to create and foster natural friendships through fantastic and diverse programming. Additionally, J'Burgh contributes to the strength of the Pittsburgh region because it makes it that much more attractive for Jewish twenty-somethings to come to and stay in the Pittsburgh area.

J'Burgh is a much needed and innovative program. It provides a Jewish social scene to young professionals and grad students in their 20's. Having participated in similar programs in other cities, I've come to realize that J'Burgh is special because it really has created a community, while most other programs for Jewish young professionals serve more exclusively as "meet markets" for singles and eventually become dominated by the 35-45 age group.

David is friendly and outgoing, and in addition to putting all his energy into the organization, he takes a strategic approach.

J'Burgh has been a great way for me to get in touch with young professionals in Pittsburgh. I'm very glad I've found the organization - I've used it to attend dance performances, holiday events, movies, etc. I'm always impressed by how many people turn out and the quality events. Thank you very much!
