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.

By helping those in need, making everyone feel included and strengthening our values and traditions, together we ensure that all of us can enjoy meaningful Jewish journeys.

Please take a moment now to meet Jack, the Busises and Sarah to see how we care for, convene and enrich our local and global Jewish communities through Giving, Inclusion and Tradition.
