J'Burgh has been a fantastic group for my wife and me since moving back to Pittsburgh in 2007. We have connected with the young Jewish community through Friday night dinners (and had the privilage of hosting one!), gotten involved in volunteering, made new friends while taking part in citywide sports, and become involved in local synagogues through their support. We couldn't say enough good things about the group and David Katz in particular.

The Great!

many ways: as a member of the group, as a host of a community Friday night minyan, as a participant in events and services

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

the connection to a religious community within a social setting.

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

Dedicated, hard-working, and in-touch with the needs of the community.

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

Offer aliyah to Israel for more people, have a dedicated office/event facility, have a scholarship program.

Ways to make it better...

I had more time to spend at events

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

Finding and growing leaders like David Katz.

I was reluctant to join J'burgh because of a bad overall experience at my collegiate Hillel. From the first time I met David Katz I was convinced, and have felt accepted and wanted at every event. The variety of activites and people involved is part of what makes the group great. David genuinely cares about the program as well as the members, and is an excellent leader for the group. Pretty much, J'Burgh flat-out rocks.

I've been to many J'Burgh events (seders, cookouts, athletic events, etc). Moving to a new city can be hard if you don't know people and J-Burgh is a welcoming community that hosts actually fun events for Jewish young adults, like poker games and international film festivals, and also important Jewish holiday dinners and Shabbat dinners. All in all, it's a great way to feel at home in Pittsburgh for Jewish young adults who recently moved there for work or grad school, and a good place to meet friends or even significant others.

Being from Pittsburgh, J'Burgh's programs have helped me reconnect with those I knew from my childhood but also meet new people in my age group as well. I have always been accustomed to a Friday night Shabbat experience (service, dinner, oneg, etc.) with those in my age group, whether it was through Hillel in college, USY or Camp Ramah. I have been able to continue that Friday night experience while participating in J'Burgh's East End Minyan.

J'Burgh provides the missing link between Hillel on college campuses and Jewish organizations geared towards adult family life. The events ranging from holiday parties and Shabbat dinners to movie nights are a great way to meet other young Jewish professionals and grad students.

Dave Katz is a friendly and likable guy who does a fantastic job at developing and executing programs for Jewish young professionals and grad students, regardless of the flavor of their Judaism. He knows the community very well, and he's a pleasure to work with. J'Burgh should continue to flourish under his leadership.
