Our Community


Until Micah entered on the scene, Jen worked for the Community College of Allegheny County, one of the finest such institutions in the country. She was a director in their Lifetime Learning division and has developed courses in belly dancing, wine appreciation, ballroom dancing, and perogie making, to name just a few. Jen recently completed her master's degree in education from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Brian is an assistant professor in the School of Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh. He sees patients at Student Health Services, teaches medical students and undergraduates, and does research on the impact of mass media on health.


Both the DC and the Pittsburgh Primacks are involved in Kulanu, an organization which is dedicated to finding and assisting lost remnants of the Jewish people around the world, from Uganda to Brazil to China. Jen and Brian were married at Tifereth Israel Congregation in Washington, DC. We are currently members at Dor Hadash, a reconstructionist egalitarian synagogue in Squirrel Hill. Brian teaches a Jewish philosophy course at the School of Advanced Jewish Studies.


Jen has spent many, many hours volunteering at the United Jewish Federation of Pittsburgh and the Orange County Rape Crisis Center in Chapel Hill, NC. Jen is currently on the board of the Pittsburgh Family Cooperative. Brian, Jen, and Micah currently lead sing-a-longs monthy at two different local nursing homes. Brian also teaches a class encouraging love of Jewish music in infants and toddlers. All of the tuition for the program is donated to children's charities.


Brian recently retired as a member of the The Amish Monkeys. Favorite previous roles have included Romeo in Romeo and Juliet and Joseph in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Brian is also an alum of Cloak and Dagger Dinner Theater. Jen is a newly avid quilter after having been inspired by Louise Silk.
