Welcome to Harrisburg


What brings you to town? . . . work, family, or just a sense of adventure?  Harrisburg and the surrounding areas have a lot to offer residents of all ages, life stages and interests. The Jewish community is no exception and supports a breadth and depth of offerings. Over 6,000 Jews call Harrisburg home and live all over the city and the surrounding areas. We have synagogues, schools, camps, adult learning, cultural arts programs and organizations, an array of volunteer opportunities, social service supports and more. We want you to feel at home in your community


We look forward to meeting you! Please contact us at 717-236-9555 at anytime with any questions or to set up a time to meet to discuss the Harrisburg Jewish Community.

PJ Library sends free Jewish children's books to families across the world every month. We know that something magical happens when parents sit down together to read with their children. PJ Library shares Jewish stories that can help your family talk together about values and traditions that are important to you.
