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.

"One of the ways that we deal with our anxieties and fears is by laughing at them; anything that can be mocked immediately seems less threatening. Many of the most important issues that Jews think about, often obsessively, are expressed in Jewish humor"
