The Centennial Fund for a Jewish Future

As the most significant planned giving undertaking in the history of the Pittsburgh Jewish community, the CFJF can ensure ongoing support for a range of high-quality programs that advance the vital aspects of Jewish life.

Funding for this endowment means that Pittsburgh can, and will become a magnet for Jews who seek a community in which learning, participation, and strong identity is the rule rather than the exception. Help us transform our community into a place that provides and offers the means to grow, learn and live Jewishly — at all levels of Jewish knowledge, observance, affiliation and participation. Your support will leave a lasting legacy that will touch countless lives today, and into the future.

"Indeed, 150 years of Jewish jokes and 2,000 years of folklore and witticisms have the uncanny ability to express truths that sociological or other academic studies usually miss."
