The Pittsburgh Community
The city of Pittsburgh has many assets that make it an ideal location for the Tzohar Seminary for Chassidus and the Arts. The first is its Chabad community, a warm, welcoming one that attracts new families to the city every year. Yeshiva Schools of Pittsburgh, a community school for pre-school through high school, was started in 1943 by Rabbi and Mrs. Sholom Posner and is the driving force behind the community.
The city itself is also a tremendous asset to this seminary. Voted “Most Livable City”, Pittsburgh has outstanding institutions of higher learning and a dynamic cultural climate, yet still manages to exude small town friendliness.
The seminary is situated in the heart of Squirrel Hill, where most of the Pittsburgh Jewish community lives. Nestled between two large wooded parks, Squirrel Hill is safe and affordable, with many beautiful old homes and plenty of shopping within walking distance.
Best of all, the Pittsburgh Jewish community is one of shalom, and the unity among Jews of different backgrounds is like no where else.
