As a new young adult here in Pittsburgh, I am excited to get to know the community and other young adults.

Originally from the Boston area, I am loving living in Pittsburgh and can’t wait to explore more restaurants, shops, and nature. I did my undergrad at UMass Amherst, worked at Clark University Hillel, and most recently lived in Jerusalem while getting my Master’s in Nonprofit Management at Hebrew University. I love to travel near and far in my free time and am looking forward to learning about what Pittsburgh and the surrounding area has to offer. I’m passionate about community building and finding ways for our Shalom Pittsburgh team to best serve Jews in the city.

Pittsburgh Supports Young Adults & Their Families

Pittsburgh has been called the “new Brooklyn” for attracting a hip younger demographic, and the young Jewish families moving here fit the description.
