The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia is committed to providing essential resources during the international crisis caused by the COVID-19 Coronavirus. We are coordinating with all Jewish-affiliated organizations, schools, synagogues and agencies in the region to assess and address emerging needs. For resources and to donate to our emergency fund, please click below.

In an abundance of caution and care for our community members, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this event. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to seeing you at other events in the future.
 
Pennsylvania was founded on principles of tolerance and diversity. Yet even today, with hate crimes on the rise, and with our Commonwealth still reeling from the tragedy at Tree of Life, our hate crime laws have not caught up to reflect our core ideals.
 

Join the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia in Harrisburg for the Pennsylvania Rally Against Hate. Together with our partners in the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Hate — a powerful alliance of civil rights, civic, business and law enforcement groups — we will raise our voices with a common goal of bringing critical updates to our Commonwealth’s hate crime laws.
