The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia strongly condemns hate speech in our community and throughout the world. When anti-Semitic hate speech was expressed by Temple University Professor Marc Lamont Hill, we immediately took action with national and local partners. We have and will continue to condemn comments that reject the state of Israel and the Jewish connection to our homeland.

Join a dynamic group of young leaders (22-45) from across the continent who make an impact on the world through their giving. You will get access to exclusive local and national events and help shape your Jewish community.

When you demonstrate your commitment to leadership with a gift of $1,000 or more, you become a member of the prestigious Ben Gurion Society. You’ll learn about the role the Jewish Federation plays in taking care of people in need and building Jewish community, and about the impact of your gift on making the world a brighter place.

As a member of the Ben Gurion Society, you’re invited to participate in exclusive Jewish Federation events and volunteer opportunities throughout the year. All JFRE events, with the exception of the JFRE Member Dinner, are free to BGS members.

You’ll also get opportunities to meet your peers from across North America and learn how the Jewish Federation movement changes more lives than any other organization in the world.
