Jewish Population Study | Community Townhall Meetings.
The 2019 Community Portrait Jewish Population Study provides a wealth of information to allow our communities to better understand the basic socio-economic, demographic and public health trends across the region's Jewish population. There are many interesting findings from the study about each of our unique communities within the Greater Philadelphia area. Federation invites you to join them for virtual Town Hall Meetings to learn more about each of these communities. The time options for the Old York Road Corridor are below; a Jewish Federation representative will present the same information at both times. Each presentation will be tailored to that specific region and followed by a Q & A session. You are welcome to register for as many sessions as you'd like to attend.

Old York Road Corridor | Tuesday, June 2, 2020
Register for the afternoon: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Register for the evening: 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
