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 putting a Jewish lens on Mother’s Day, followed by a breakdown of the latest anti-Semitic crime statistics with the Anti-Defamation League’s Robin Burstein, and  we’re paying tribute to Memorial Day with the heroic story of Rabbi Alexander Goode, one of the “Infamous Chaplains” of World War II.

We also had the honor to sit down with Mark Wilf, Owner and President of the Minnesota Vikings, to discuss growing up in New Jersey with parents who survived the Holocaust, how networks like the NFL can help to combat the rise in Antisemitism and what it was like to watch the Philadelphia Eagles win the Superbowl in his own team’s stadium.
