Alumni and friends celebrated the 2022 holidays at RiverRink, enjoying refreshments in a private lodge overlooking the skating rink and Center City skyline.

The Alumni Club of Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey serves the more than 2,300 Brandeisians in the Tri-State area, from Center City and the Philly suburbs to southern and central New Jersey and Delaware. The club holds events on both sides of the river, and two annual favorites are Faculty in the Field with a Brandeis professor and our holiday gathering at RiverRink. Other highlights from recent years include visits to Philly favorites such as the Franklin Institute, the National Constitution Center and the National Museum of American Jewish History; theater productions at the Kimmel Center; and Sixers games at the Wells Fargo Center.

Whether you are new to the region or have lived here for many years, we welcome you to join our regional leadership team to plan programs that will bring Brandeisians together. Please connect with us through our Facebook group.
