Shofar Society

The Shofar Society is a new association for men contributing at least $5,000 to the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh’s Annual Campaign.

From the bond of this society, our community becomes stronger and our participants will be connected through meaningful programming, social gatherings and philanthropic endeavors.

Throughout Jewish history, the shofar has been used as a call to action, its plaintive tones marking significant moments in Jewish life wherever Jews live and congregate. Long ago, it served as a call to battle for the ancient Israelites. Today, we are again called to action – this time, to protect and strengthen our community. You too can answer the shofar’s call. We hope you will hear it and join us.
