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.

Hundreds of members of our community gather each year to observe Holocaust Memorial Day.

Philadelphia was one of the first American cities to conduct a public ceremony and to erect a monument in memory of the six million Jews who perished in the Shoah.

This moving and meaningful event also provides an opportunity to honor the Holocaust survivors living in our community, and to share the stories of those who perished and those who survived with our young people through the Dorothy Freedman Memorial Conversation with a Survivor program, for middle and high school students.
