The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia strongly condemns hate speech in our community and throughout the world. When anti-Semitic hate speech was expressed by Temple University Professor Marc Lamont Hill, we immediately took action with national and local partners. We have and will continue to condemn comments that reject the state of Israel and the Jewish connection to our homeland.

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.
