The Hillel JUC of Pittsburgh
October 30, 2009

I became involved when I was brought by a friend to a Shabbat dinner, where more than a hundred kids were singing, praying, and eating together. It was a wonderful, emotional thing to watch. It made me know that this Hillel is very special and an organization I want to be part of.

The Great!

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

Watching Jewish students from around the county find a home away from home in Pittsburgh. Hillel provides a safe, educational, supportive Jewish place for students to congregate for all different reasons.

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

Watching the impact of our strong Board leadership on the facility and programming offered at Hillel.

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

Extremely competent, creative, experienced, and compassionate to the students.

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

Expand programming into the community; include other campuses that have a Jewish student body but not enough to have their own Hillel on campus; offer free Shabbat dinners and other programming that is badly needed; hire an additional Jewish professional.

J'Burgh
October 12, 2009

J'Burgh has become an essential tool in the Pittsburgh Jewish Community's quest to create a welcoming, supportive environment for Jewish young adults. It bridges a gap between Hillel's efforts and those of our United Jewish Federation, and offers an inviting "home" for 20-somethings who need social and professional networking opportunities.

The Great!

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

Watching many young participants find a sense of community in Pittsburgh
