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.

Once a year, the leaders of the Greater Jewish Philadelphia community gather to toast the vibrancy and success of our Jewish Federation. The Main Event is an elegant evening of cocktails, food and entertainment in an exciting venue with a top speaker.

2018 Main Event

In honor of Israel’s 70th anniversary, join us for a celebration of our love for Israel and our long history of supporting our Jewish homeland. The night will include a special tribute to our 70 years of connecting Greater Philadelphia to Israel through missions.
