Note: You only need to RSVP once. We anticipate these events being hybrid so that you can join in-person at the JCC-Squirrel Hill or on Zoom, and we plan to email you the meeting details closer to event.
*Safety for all is our priority; we will follow the guidance of the CDC, the Allegheny County Health Department, and the Pittsburgh Regional Health Initiative and will clarify details with registered participants. Regardless of potential in-person challenges, we are fully committed to hosting the events on Zoom.
