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.

Since its founding, Israel has sent aid to 140 countries, helping people all over with anything from medical to psychological to educational and environmental relief — a phenomenal achievement for a country that has existed for only 70 years. To celebrate the devotion and accomplishments of Israeli aid workers, this exhibition explores the many facets of this aid.
