Don’t Miss The Evasons – As Seen on Penn & Teller!

The Jewish Federation of NEPA invites you to join world famous mentalist duo Jeff & Tessa Evason at the JCC on October 21, 2017 and witness mind-blowing feats of ESP and Second Sight that’ll have you buzzing long after the show ends.  Everyone who participates will be absolutely floored when Tessa reveals their birth date, a serial number on any bill in their wallet or even the name of the first person they ever kissed – all while standing blindfolded on stage.  Her intuitive gifts will make you gasp with surprise and maybe even unleash a spooked-out shriek!

Statement of the Jewish Federation of Northeastern Pennsylvania

The Jewish Federation of Northeastern Pennsylvania is appalled and saddened by the violence in Charlottesville, VA. This display of hate, bigotry, racism, xenophobia, and anti-Semitism by white supremacists has no place in America. We are horrified and sickened by the messages spewed at the rally, and by the deaths and injuries caused by the act of terrorism they have inspired. We send our condolences to the families of those who have lost their lives and wish a speedy recovery to others who have been injured.

The Jewish Federation of NEPA

It is YOUR portal to all things Jewish in Northeastern Pennsylvania, to the world of Jewish values, activities, learning, events, and charitable works – we are your gateway to Jewish life.

The Federation is the preeminent philanthropic organization for taking care of problems that Jews face and for strengthening Jewish community and supporting the development of our future, as a vital, vibrant, self-sustaining people. The Federation stands at the center of a network of partner agencies capable of reaching out to Jews throughout the world suffering from unemployment, poverty, problems associated aging, disabilities, illness, domestic violence, terrorism, and much more.
