Review for The Hillel JUC of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Our daughter, a sophomore honors student at PITT benefits from Hillel JUC of Pittsburgh. There she meets her friends, celebrates Jewish life, enjoys communal meals and knows she has a safe place if she is having any issues as a Jewish student on campus. Hillel's presence is an active voice for assuring that the campus responds with sensitivity to issues of Jewish Concern. It is a place where students convene for social action and for interfaith activity.

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

support for my daughter

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

assure they have more permanent financial resources

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

its warm, accepting and outreach efforts

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

warm and gracious

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

welcome students with shabbat meals, festivals and transportation to social action projects every week

Ways to make it better...

more students were matched with local families for holidays. There were a few where their family pair did not show up to the meet and greet.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the many campus activities that compete for the students time and attention.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Hillel is a great place, great team and great commmunity organizing mechanism

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
