The Hillel JUC of Pittsburgh
October 24, 2009

The Hillel JUC of Pittsburgh is a wonderful inviting place where I have seen fabulous programs and events reach out to many students. From their Shabbat dinners which draw a ton of students, to cultural events, and student involvement in the community I continue to be impressed with all that Hillel offers.

J'Burgh
October 6, 2009

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
