Welcome to AABGU’s Mid-Atlantic Region, based in the Philadelphia suburb of Jenkintown.
We are a veteran organization in the community, with a history of over 30 years of informative events and outstanding leadership. With more than 25 events per year, we offer you opportunities to meet world-class researchers and professors, primarily in private homes at no cost to our guests, to learn about Ben-Gurion University’s role in developing Israel’s Negev region.
Eager to expand our network of friends, the Mid-Atlantic Region recently opened a new chapter in Pittsburgh. After several well-attend parlor meetings in that community, we proudly inducted a chapter chair: prominent attorney, Jeff Letwin of Schnader Harrison, Segal and Lewis LLP.
We look forward to the strong Pittsburgh Jewish community joining the AABGU family, bringing new friends into our circle of support for BGU.
Please check this website and plan to join us for an upcoming event.
With best regards,
261 Old York Road
