The same concerns that are present in Pcola are present in the whole nation. Many will key in specific incidents, but they are not the norm.

For our poster, contact the POC at the Synagogues and ask you question. By the way we got lots and lots of churches in Northwest Florida. I'm a member of an Inter-Faith group that works together to provide better support to our community. In my case I review concerns from Tallahassee to Pcola and as a working team we provide solutions to some cases.

Yes, we will have situations that showed the lack of respect for individuals religious belief, but we can't control individuals. We can educate and show that we have a greater responsibility to our community. I rather be a person that assist and be part of the solution than just sit and complain.

Thank you

How would you compare Miami Beach, Ft. Lauderdale, and Palm Beach?

Also, Jax Beach, Atlantic Bch, and Neptune Bch.

I agree!!
I am a young college student who though coming to UWF and Pensacola to finish my degree would be an experience.
And believe me, it IS and experience. But probably not the kind you're looking for.
While UWF is an amazing school and I have nothing but good things to say about it, Pensacola is ridiculous.
The economy is terrible, it is low-paying. The entire west side of the city is ghetto, and don't even get me started on the drivers!
Traffic is terrible because the development of the highways is lagging far behind the amount of traffic in the area.
Pensacola is a great place to vacation, but not to live.
I can't wait til I get to move back home at the end of this semester.

Exactly, Pensacola is not anywhere near the top choice for a young person just out of college.

And the incidence of intolerance are numerous. It is irresponsible for some posters here to try and sugar coat Pensacola and direct a young Jewish kid to live there.
