The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia is anguished and outraged by the senseless violence in Las Vegas. As we begin the new year, our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families and the entire Las Vegas community today.

What’s your Israel story?

The Jewish Federation and First Person Arts, Philadelphia’s premier storytelling organization, are teaming up to host storytelling workshops throughout Greater Philadelphia. Participants will work in small groups led by professional coaches in order to draw out and craft your personal story about your affinity with Israel.

To showcase our diverse connections to Israel, participants will record a professionally filmed telling of their stories, which will be shared via social media.

On May 6th, select authors will have the chance to take the mic on the 5-6-70 Israel! stage to share their stories with the community.
