The Vision of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh is to have a thriving, vibrant, and engaged Jewish Community. In order to accomplish this we raise and allocate funds and build community locally, in Israel, and around the world.

The Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh will be able to provide the most benefit to our community only if we are true to the following core values:

  • We are guided by the teachings of Torah including; tikkun olam (repairing the world), tzedakah (justice), chesed (kindness) and k’lal Yisrael (peoplehood).

  • We aim to sustain and meaningfully grow Jewish identity, leadership and involvement in our community.

  • Our work will be carried out within the context of cooperation and inclusiveness.

  • We recognize the importance of working in concert with others.

  • We care about building a strong community with purpose and involvement.

  • We will establish priorities to accomplish our vision and mission.
