Hillel Jewish University Center will again offer its Family Ties program to Jewish Pittsburgh college students this year.

Family Ties connects Jewish college students with Pittsburgh Jewish households to create a family experience for all participants.

This is the fourth year for the program.

Families may meet with their paired students once a month or once a semester. Activities can range from a Shabbat or High Holy Day meal, a sporting event, shopping or just hanging out on a Sunday afternoon.

Visit hilleljuc.org/familyties by Wednesday, Sept. 5, to register. Participants will be notified of their matches on Friday Sept. 7. A kick-off party for the families and students will be held Tuesday, Sept. 11. Matches are made based on level of observance and career interests.

For students unable to commit to Family Ties, Hillel JUC will try to match students with families for the High Holy Days only. Families are still needed who can host students for Rosh Hashana lunch, Monday, Sept. 17. Contact David Katz at davidk@hilleljuc.orgfor more information.
