Welcome to AABGU’s Mid-Atlantic Region, based in the Philadelphia suburb of Jenkintown, PA.
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 the community 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 opened a chapter in Pittsburgh, PA and in Delaware in recent years. We look forward to new leaders and donors emerging from the new chapters, joining the long-time dedicated leaders of the Philadelphia chapter.
As Ben-Gurion University approaches its 50th anniversary in 2020, we hope you will join thousands of generous and caring Israel-minded men and women who support this young and dynamic university.
Please check this website and plan to join us for an upcoming event. You will be most welcome.
With best regards,
