Welcome to J-SITE!

J-SITE: the Jewish Site for Innovative Teen Education, is Pittsburgh’s leader in Jewish teenage education for students from all backgrounds. J-SITE programs prepare individuals to think critically, feel responsibility to the Jewish people, and participate in Jewish communal life. Positive Jewish involvement at this pivotal age will help teens grow into highly engaged Jews.
