Stop spamming me. If I didn't want to review the organization the first ten times I got an email then I wouldn't be leaving a bad review now. Give it a rest. This survey doesn't mean a darned thing.

J'Burgh is a great organization. It has provided me with many opportunities to get involved with other Jewish young adults in a variety of programs and activities. There is no pressure to be more religious, with events ranging from sports teams, cultural shows, and cooking lessons. For those interested, holidays are celebrated in such way that interests my age group, such as a Megillah reading at a bar. As a graduate student, when I can't get home for the holidays, I know with J'Burgh, I can attend services and have a festive meal. With the wide variety of opportunities, there is truly something for everyone. It has created a close community in Pittsburgh for Jewish young adults!

Although I moved from Pittsburgh shortly after I became aware of J'Burgh, the organization has had a profound impact on my feeling part of the greater American Jewish community. There is no better opportunity for Jewish adults to celebrate their unique and evolving culture, and I hope that a similar organization forms in the Denver area soon! I think that J'Burgh is a terrific outlet for the great potential that Pittsburgh's Jewish young adults exhibit to make a positive impact, and I am honored to have been involved with them, even if for a short time.

David Katz does a great job of getting as many people as possible involved and at the same time organizing a huge range of events.

J'Burgh is meaningful but fun, well-run and seems to be very much "on the grow" -- the organizations offers a wide range of spiritual, cultural, political and intellectual activities, and is becoming more and more important to the young Jewish social scene of Pittsburgh! Please consider rewarding this up-and-coming organization with the recognition it deserves -- positive public relations can only serve to enhance the parts of its mission that are already going strong.

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

J'Burgh gives me the opportunity to meet other Jewish young people I would not otherwise know and try Jewish things I might not otherwise come in contact with -- and the result is that I feel more connected to both.

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

expand worldwide! J'Burgh could be an international web of local networks for young Jews all over the world to feel connected to their shared heritage -- and connect with one another.

Let's be honest...there were not many organizations in Pittsburgh which catered to young Jewish people. This is exactly what Pittsburgh needed. I have enjoyed myself more at J'Burgh events than all other local Jewish events in Pittsburgh combined. I am grateful for J'Burgh and excited for the next event.

The Great!

J'burgh has been incredibly supportive of Maimonides, the Jewish medical student organization at the University of Pittsburgh, throughout my time there. David Katz (who runs J'burgh) has reached out to us consistently and has helped us achieve more with the limited resources available to us. He has connected us to Jewish community leaders who have gone on to speak to the med student community, included the Maimonides students in J'burgh's annual High Holidays functions (including a delicious Break Fast meal), and helped us procure much-needed funding through various organizations in Pittsburgh. Maimonides would not be anywhere close to the organization it now is without J'burgh's proactive and enthusiastic approach! Ben Israel President, Maimonides MS-II University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

J'burgh directly connected us to a prominent Jewish community scholar who agreed to be our guest at the medial school and deliver a talk on Jewish medical ethics to approximately 50 people.
