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. For resources and to donate to our emergency fund, please click below.


This month, we’re taking about staying safe and practicing self care in turbulent times, then we’ll sit down with the editor of the Jewish Exponent Liz Spikol to hear how Jewish newspapers cover mass shootings, and finally we’re sharing the story of Dr. Ruth, who went from Holocaust survivor to celebrity sex therapist.

We also had the privilege to sit down with author Amanda Stern to talk about living with an un-diagnosed panic disorder, how the disappearance of Etan Patz shaped her world view, and all about her wildly successful performing arts series that attracted everyone from Moby to Lena Dunham.
