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 the hot button topic of gun control, then we’ll sit down with the Jewish Exponent’s Selah Maya Zigelboim to discuss the heart wrenching closing of Hahnemann hospital, and finally we’re sharing the story of America’s first “talkie” film the Jazz Singer, which was a love letter to a Jewish family on Yom Kippur.

We had the privilege to sit down with Ethan Felson, the Executive Director of the Israel Action Network, to discuss why he’s dedicated his career to supporting Jewish communities and Israel, how our local communities can engage in the fight against anti-Semitism, and why the BDS movement won’t lead to peace for either Israelis or Palestinians.
