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.

“A Jewish cemetery that was badly damaged by vandals earlier this year has been fully restored thanks to a huge outpouring from the community.

The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia gave the first tour of the recently restored Mt. Carmel Cemetery on 5722 Frankford Avenue to Mayor Jim Kenney on Tuesday.”
