J-Serve, Jewish Teens in Community Service
J-Serve is the annual day of service for over 15,000 Jewish teens around the world. It’s a unique project that is run by teens, for teens. J-Serve here joins Jewish teens from across the Greater Pittsburgh region to learn together and serve the community. Local teens volunteer for a day to help address homelessness, hunger, the environment, inclusion of children with special needs, and much more.

Meet Our New J-Serve Coordinator, Ryan Tuchin!
Ryan Tuchin is a Pittsburgh native and will be working closely with our J-SERVE steering committee and teens this year. He looks forward to meeting you in September. Ryan was raised in Pittsburgh and is a proud product of NFTY and the URJ camp system. After spending 6 years in Philly, he is excited to be moving back home with his wife and two-year-old daughter. Outside of Jewish youth work, he can usually be found either in the kitchen or watching baseball. (Go, Phillies!)
