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.

The Philadelphia Jewish community kicks off the year every February with a day of tzedakah.

Add meaning to your year by spending the day with the Jewish Federation, raising vital funds to serve vulnerable populations and support Jewish life and learning.

Engage in volunteer work that makes an immediate impact right here in our communities. Join more than 600 volunteers who Carry the Light by calling Jewish Federation supporters and ask them to renew their financial commitment.

Bring your friends. Bring your neighbors. And don’t forget to bring your cell phone to make those important calls!
