Young Adult Division (YAD)

The Young Adult Division of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh is the nexus of Pittsburgh's vibrant community of Jews in their 20s, 30s and early 40s. YAD offers many exciting ways to get involved and get connected, including: fun social events; meaningful volunteer service opportunities; spectacular trips to Israel and beyond; stimulating educational programs; and fulfilling leadership opportunities. There are events for families, singles and everyone in between, as well as events that bring the entire community together. YAD also serves a variety of relief agencies helping the needy throughout our global community.

Get Involved

Getting involved with YAD is an exciting way to meet other young adults who share your values and interests. YAD, along with Shalom Pittsburgh, the outreach and engagement arm of YAD, offers social, community service, cultural and educational events, as well as leadership development and travel opportunities.
