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.

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