The Hillel JUC of Pittsburgh
October 30, 2009

Being from Pittsburgh, Hillel JUC’ 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 away from my hometown, USY or Camp Ramah. I have been able to continue that Friday night experience while participating in Hillel JUC’s J'Burgh's East End Minyan. In addition, as a board member of Congregation Beth Shalom, I have witnessed the efforts Hillel JUC’s undergraduate division and J’Burgh’s graduate division, which they have successfully conducted outreach and partnerships with its neighboring congregations, such as Congregation Beth Shalom in Squirrel Hill. For many years, they have coordinated their undergraduate and graduate students to attend Beth Shalom’s High Holiday and weekly Shabbat services as well as work in the synagogue’s Religious School, Pre School, USY and Kadima. Hillel JUC and J’Burgh have ensured their students who are accustomed to having a family-style (meal) atmosphere on the High Holidays made possible. Beth Shalom families have welcomed students into their houses with open arms. In return, Beth Shalom has generously helped sponsor and attended Hillel JUC’s Shabbat dinners and fundraisers over the years. Hillel JUC’s and Hillel JUC J’Burgh’s students have made a positive impact on Beth Shalom’s programming, services and schools, and positive interactions with the congregation’s membership.
