Jewish Women's Center of Pittsburgh: Welcome! A community of women rooted in Jewish values and feminist ideals

The Jewish Women's Center is a community of women of all backgrounds that provides educational opportunities and spiritual experiences rooted in Jewish values and feminist ideals. The JWC is a supportive environment for broadening our knowledge of and involvement in Jewish life. The programs and resources of the JWC create opportunities for Jewish women's learning, leadership, spiritual growth, and ritual practice. We are an independent, non-profit organization run by members. All women are welcome. View our brochure or read some of our newsletters.

We invite you to join us. Experience the richness, warmth and spirit of the Jewish Women's Center community. Join in new rituals that mark important moments for Jewish women. Share in exploring old and new ways to enhance our involvement in Jewish life.
