YAD Outreach and Engagement Chair

Why are you involved with Young Adult Division and The Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh?

I want to help improve engagement and outreach to the under-40 members of the Jewish community. I feel they are a largely untapped resource, both in current involvement and their future potential, that could significantly benefit both the Jewish Federation and the overall Jewish community of Pittsburgh.

Why do you think it’s important to give to The Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh?

The Federation’s role as a central distributor of support, funds, and guidance, for countless people and programs across greater Pittsburgh, make it the most important Jewish organization to give to.
