Read About J-Serve

J-Serve Pittsburgh is an invigorating, inspiring teen-planned day of Jewish community service, attended each year by 300 Jewish teens in 6th-12th grade from around greater Pittsburgh. Teens meet at the JCC in Squirrel Hill for breakfast and an engaging learning session led by their peers. Then, they’re off to volunteer at more than 15 local service locations (including Repair the World, Cribs for Kids, 412 Food Rescue, Family House, and Charles Morris) for several hours before returning to the JCC for lunch and celebration.

Transportation to the Squirrel Hill JCC for the event is available each year from the South Hills JCC, Adat Shalom (Fox Chapel), Temple David (Monroeville) and Temple Ohav Shalom (North Hills).

J-Serve Pittsburgh is organized by a teen Steering Committee, who meet monthly to plan the event, recruit teens, and generate publicity.

J-Serve Pittsburgh is a partnership of the Jewish Community Center of Greater Pittsburgh, Repair the World: Pittsburgh, BBYO, and the Volunteer Center of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh.

Volunteer to make a difference in our community this year!
