Jewish Life at the JCC

Re-Imagining Jewish Engagement

Imagine a JCC in which we are even more intentional about the Jewish values we integrate into our everyday programming for toddlers, youth, teens, adults and seniors.

 Imagine a JCC in which teens from across the Jewish community, from a wide variety of synagogues, organizational affiliations and backgrounds, gather together to CONNECT, LEAD, LEARN AND REPAIR.

Imagine a JCC that is a part of a network of teen leaders, Jewish organizations, youth professionals and lay leaders who strengthen the community together in a college-Hillel-like structure.

Imagine a JCC that provides dedicated Jewish teen space that is a hybrid of a coffee shop and a college lounge on the Second Floor of the Robinson Building.

Imagine with us a Department of Jewish Life that is committed to disciplined experimentation in an evolving 21st century Greater Pittsburgh Jewish Community.

As the Prophet Joel teaches: “It will come about after this that I will pour out My Spirit on all humankind; and your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old will dream dreams, your young will see visions.”  This is a moment for us to dream and envision together, to advance our collective mission of building Jewish community together, in partnership across our community.
