Statement on DeSean Jackson: The anti-Semitic comments displayed by DeSean Jackson on his instagram are deeply offensive and disturbing. These words have been used for centuries to support the vilification and extermination of Jews. As a representative of our city, we call on DeSean Jackson to stop spreading hate and bigotry and to become better educated about anti-Semitism.

From our article in Philadelphia magazine’s Be Well Philly blog: “The traditional latke recipe is pretty simple: two grated Russet potatoes, two eggs, two tablespoons of flour, and some salt and pepper, mixed up into pancakes and fried in oil. Delicious, but not exactly the picture of health.

But who says you even need white potatoes? If you’re looking for some latke options that are more nutrient-dense and use vegetables that are packed with more vitamins than your average potato, the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia has you covered. We tried all eight of these recipes, and they all got our taste-bud stamp of approval.”
