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.


This month, we’re breaking down the age old stereotype of Jewish anxiety, followed by a conversation about the rise of antisemitism in Europe with Israeli reporter Eldad Beck, and finally we’re honoring Jewish Disability and Awareness month by paying tribute to three amazing Jews with physical handicaps who have made incredible achievements in their communities.

We also had the honor to sit down with Shelby and Amy Zitelman, two of the three sisters behind the company Soom Foods, to talk about they turned their passion into a business, the partnerships they’ve built with Philadelphia chefs and restaurants and a million uses for tahini.

All products are available at or on Amazon. Check them out on instagram @soomfoods.
