The Jewish Federation is here for you, always, and especially during this trying time. The Federation staff is currently operating remotely and all of our staff members are best reachable by email, or you may leave a message at 610-821-5500. In the mean time, we have gathered both local and national resources to allow you to remain engaged and involved in the Jewish community during your time at home.
