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.

The State of Israel is making a massive effort to shift its resources — and encourage its citizens to relocate — to the Negev, its southern region, which includes the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia’s “sister city” Netivot and neighboring Sdot Negev. These colorful and often humorous posters, created by multiple Israeli artists, help spread that message.

 

This exhibit will be accompanied by translations of the posters along with explanatory text, illuminating the social and cultural importance of the imagery found on each poster. This exhibit is a fun and informative way to experience the real life effects of Israel’s famously innovative spirit.
