About

J’Burgh is the place to find your Jewish social life in the 412!

J’Burgh is a project of the Hillel Jewish University Center (JUC) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. J’Burgh focuses on building sustained and thriving communities of interest for Jewish young adults between the ages of 21 – 30 who live, work and study in the Greater Pittsburgh area. J’Burgh offers multiple outlets for outreach and engagement through its weekly programming and ability to connect people through building networks in places of specific interest among young Jews. 

In the last five years Pittsburgh’s young adult community has grown by 7%. That is higher than Philadelphia and Washington DC. According to a 2013 study by Pittsburgh Today this number is going to continue to grow steadily over the foreseeable future. This is great news for J’Burgh as our main goal is to raise awareness of how much Pittsburgh has to offer a Jew in their 20’s and in turn keep them in the area to grow the Pittsburgh Jewish population and add to the overall success of Pittsburgh as a thriving city.

Join J’Burgh for a number of exciting activities every month including Shabbat Dinners, Thirsty Thursdays, our annual Purim party, business and networking events and lots of sporting activities! Not to mention we are your place to come for High Holidays!
