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 talking about all things voting, starting with an update on the millennial outlook for the upcoming midterms, followed by a conversation on the local Philly political landscape with Jewish Exponent reporter Joshua Needleman and finally we’ll honor Gertrude Elion, the Nobel Prize winner who overcame discrimination to save lives.

And in honor of Israel’s 70th anniversary, we’re sitting down with political strategist Larry Ceisler to discuss what it’s like to be Israel’s PR representative, the challenges of remaining nonpartisan in an increasingly partisan world and his advice for young Jews who are seeking a career in Philly politics.
