The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia is committed to providing essential resources during the international crisis caused by the COVID-19 Coronavirus. We are coordinating with all Jewish-affiliated organizations, schools, synagogues and agencies in the region to assess and address emerging needs.

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.
