Welcome to KULAM

Imagine a place where…

People wrestle passionately with Jewish texts,
Connect with the essence of Jewish tradition,
Build community,
And enrich our lives.

If this sounds interesting to you, join us at KULAM.

Kulam (meaning “everyone”) is an experiment in building community through serious Jewish learning.  We are building a place where Pittsburghers can come together to learn Jewish texts through chevruta (partnered) study and demonstrate the importance, relevance, and excitement of different types of Jews wrestling with the difficult issues fundamental to Jewish life and tradition.
