United Jewish Federation of Pittsburgh
October 31, 2007

The United Jewish Federation of Pittsburgh is an amazing organization which uniquely unites a diverse spectrum of Jewish people for many common causes. Unlike other city's federations, which ten dot be dominated by one political ideology, religious denomination, or other faction of the grester Jewish community, Pittsburgh's Federation engages liberals and conservatives, Reform, Conservative, Orthodox, Lubavich, Reconstructionist, and Secular Jews in common efforts to fortify the community and build a better Pittsburgh. Having just moved to Pittsburgh from a much latrger Jewish community, this strikes me as the most impressive facet of the UJF of Pittsburgh. Not to diminish the other work UJF does, I have benfited directly from programs such as Shalom Pittsburgh and J'Burgh which provide meaningful Jewish expereinces to young people. I have also volunteered with the local branch of the JCPA here, CPAC, which addresses diverse concerns ranging from the genocide in Sudan, the Iranian threat, promoting sustainable energy use, and the Jewish Unity Project, to fighting gun violence on a local level. In short, UJF Pittsburgh is amazing... I look forward to being successful enough to make a generous contribution.
