Birthright Israel Trip

We regret to inform you that, due to health concerns about the coronavirus that causes COVID-19, we have postponed this trip until further notice. Although every organization will make its own decisions about the safety of upcoming events, the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh is acting with an abundance of caution in cancelling, postponing, or adapting all of our events for the next eight weeks. Our topmost concern is the safety and health of the people in Jewish Pittsburgh, and we will let you know our plans for this trip when we are able to make an informed decision.

The Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh continues to monitor the spread of the coronavirus closely with support from our national organizations and from local government. Please let us know if you have any questions, and thanks for your understanding during this period of uncertainty. We look forward to seeing you at a later date.
