Chester County is a vibrant community, rich with Jewish resources for you and your family.
Chester County, founded in 1682 by William Penn, was one of the first three original counties in Pennsylvania. It consistently ranks among the top places to live, work, and raise a family, due to its fine cultural attractions, history, educational opportunities, well-known teaching hospitals, and diverse employment choices. The Chester County Kehillah is an active force in maintaining a strong Jewish community for people who have migrated from metropolitan Philadelphia and for those who have relocated from other communities.
