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.

What can we learn from Israel? A lot! Many of the cultural topics at the center of American thinking are the exact same topics that Israeli social innovators are hard at work on. Of course, common issues do not necessarily lead to common solutions. We hope, though, that by hearing what has been tried in Israel, we might be refreshed and inspired by new ideas. To that end, throughout the year we will host some of the top Israeli thinkers and cultural revolutionaries for a series of truly inspiring lectures. Topics will include: disabilities inclusion and rights, LGBTQIA inclusion and rights, minority women and food insecurity. Check back frequently for updates on our expanding year-long program.
