J'Burgh
October 7, 2009

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

The Hillel JUC of Pittsburgh
October 7, 2009

The Hillel JUC was a vital, influential lifeline both during my college career and after. A home away from home, the staff worked endlessly and tirelessly to create a welcoming, pluralistic environment. From my first trip to Israel to my last Shabbat dinner, I grew in such ways that only the Hillel JUC made possible. Each staff member from the moment you walked in the door was there to greet you and provide you with all the support and resources needed. The Hillel JUC fosters relationships and creates leaders. I am proud to have served on the student board, to have had the privilege to contribute ideas and be given the capacity to see them through. The Hillel JUC is what all hillels strive towards but rarely accomplish: a place to explore one's culture, challenge one's identity and engage intellectually and spiritually with others. There's no better organization to facilitate and develop the future leaders of America.
