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.

Throughout late summer and fall of 2018 the Jewish Federation will bring photographs from Erez Kaganovitz’s eye-opening project “Humans of Tel Aviv” to Greater Philadelphia. Our feature will include numerous programs and learning opportunities around the photographs.

Erez Kaganovitz studied Journalism and International Relations at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. After moving to Tel Aviv, he was amazed by the variety of characters swirling around him in the city. Since then, he has taken nearly 1,000 portraits, published alongside each individual’s story, which comprise “Humans of Tel Aviv.”
