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.

“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.”
