Statement on DeSean Jackson: The anti-Semitic comments displayed by DeSean Jackson on his instagram are deeply offensive and disturbing. These words have been used for centuries to support the vilification and extermination of Jews. As a representative of our city, we call on DeSean Jackson to stop spreading hate and bigotry and to become better educated about anti-Semitism.

Bux-Mont is a dynamic suburban segment of the Jewish community of Greater Philadelphia.

The region includes the northeastern part of Montgomery County as well as adjacent southwestern Bucks County, with major population centers in Blue Bell, Fort Washington, Lafayette Hill, Plymouth Meeting, Ambler, Dresher, Jenkintown, Maple Glen, Warrington and Warminster. The Jewish population of Bux-Mont has more than doubled since 1983 to include more than 40,000 individuals in over 15,000 Jewish households. Bux-Mont hosts nine congregations in the region which represent Reform, Conservative, Reconstructionist and Chabad Lubavitch movements.

The area features a robust coalition of professional and volunteer leadership who come together bi-annually to collaborate and share ideas, challenges and successes.
