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.

There was a huge turnout Sunday in Bala Cynwyd for the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia’s largest fundraiser of the year.

Hundreds of volunteers spent the day making phone calls to raise money for the Jewish Federation’s “Super Sunday” event.
