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.

 

It’s March 2018, and for our inaugural episode we’ll be discussing Jewish teens in the age of the Me Too movement, followed by an eccentric Purim story straight from the Eagles playbook with Jewish Exponent editor Joshua Runyan, and finally a commemoration of a revered Jewish composer and conductor who’s 100th birthday is being celebrated all over Philadelphia.

And in honor of Israel’s 70th anniversary, we’re sitting down with former US Ambassador to Israel Daniel Shapiro to talk about family life in the Tel Aviv embassy and his views on the future of the two state solution. Thanks for tuning in and welcome to Jewish Philly!
