Snapshot of Pittsburgh
Did you know that Pittsburgh is historically called the Steel City, as its economy was largely based on steel manufacturing? Pittsburgh has gone through a renaissance and now the economy is primarily driven by health care, medicine, technology, robotics, and financial services. Today, the city is focusing on the environment: supporting local-food projects and adding five miles of new bike lanes last year. Keeping up with the trends, the Hillel Jewish University Center of Pittsburgh is undergoing major renovations to green their building, becoming one of the first Hillels in the country to be LEED certified over the next few years.
While in Pittsburgh we will
- Be hosted graciously by the Pittsburgh JCC, located in the beautiful Squirrel Hill area
- Volunteer at the Squirrel Hill food pantry
- Have the chance to explore Pittsburgh and see the amazing changes from a steel city to a green city!
