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.

J-SERVE 2015 is a joint project of the Agency for Jewish Learning, BBYO Keystone Mountain Region, the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh’s Volunteer Center, and Repair the World.

For any questions about J-Serve, please contact Director of Teen Learning Carolyn Gerecht, cgerecht@ajlpittsburgh.org or (412) 521-1101 x3204.
