Vintage Pittsburgh Jewish Calendar Sale


When a friend kvetched that she couldn't find a modern Jewish calendar--that all the Jewish calendars on the market were "fussy, predictable, and /or boring"--CDS parent Lisa Zeidner Marcus set out to make something better. The Vintage Pittsburgh Jewish Calendar 5778 Project was born.


Lisa has designed a beautiful 2017-2018 (Hebrew year 5778) calendar for Community Day School families and friends that features stunning archival photographs of the Pittsburgh Jewish community and historic maps. You'll be proud to hang this full-color, coil-bound premium calendar on your wall, and it will become an invaluable tool as you plan your days.


Each calendar costs $34.20. All proceeds will be put toward enhancing security initiatives at Community Day School.

Three versions of the calendar are available to meet your needs:


1) Jewish and U.S. holidays  

2) Jewish and U.S. holidays  +  Pittsburgh candle-lighting times 

3) Jewish and U.S. holidays  +  Pittsburgh candle-lighting times + CDS calendar events



Thank you for your support of Community Day School security initiatives.

I am glad and honored to be entrusted with helping to raise money for the school knowing that the funds raised will have a positive impact on children's lives for generations to come and the strength and vibrancy of Pittsburgh's Jewish community.

- Ken Levin, CDS Parent, Vice President of the Board of Trustees, and Institutional Advancement Chair
