Big Table Pittsburgh

April 17, 2019, 9:30 AM

Pittsburgh is a region that can and does thrive when we choose to care for each other.  When we give our time to converse and connect, we draw each other closer and create the power to lead our community to an even better future. Given the pace of our world, we tend to gather, mostly, for reasons that are more personal or organizational. The Big Table Pittsburgh is an opportunity to have a discussion that one may not have otherwise. The Big Table Pittsburgh conversations can connect across community.

Reserve you place at the table by clicking here.  Please select the JCC as your location.
