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.

Join the Philadelphia Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) of the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia for an evening reception featuring Father Josh Thomas, Executive Director of Kids4Peace, which promotes peacebuilding efforts between Israeli and Palestinian children in Jerusalem. Experience an enlightening discussion with Fr. Josh, along with Israeli and Palestinian alums from Kids4Peace who can speak directly about their experiences.
