Bucks County is home to the third-largest Jewish community in the state of Pennsylvania. This area is experiencing constant growth as neighborhoods become small towns and small towns become cities.

Spanning from Yardley in the east to Doylestown in the west, New Hope in the north and Levittown in the south, over 46,000 Jews call Bucks County home. There are 16 synagogues and organizations throughout Bucks County serving conservative, orthodox, reconstructionist, and reform denominations.

Bucks County has an active coalition of professionals and volunteers who meet monthly to plan events for the Jewish community in Bucks County. Our mission is to enhance Jewish life in Bucks County through collaboration with synagogues in areas of education and support of Israel. The Coalition is dedicated to providing cultural, educational, and social programs to meet the needs of the Jewish Community.

The Coalition sends out a monthly e-newsletter to share information about Jewish community programming throughout the county. For more information about Bucks County Jewish Coalition or to add your name to our monthly e-newsletter, contact Eve Berger at
