Statement on DeSean Jackson: The anti-Semitic comments displayed by DeSean Jackson on his instagram are deeply offensive and disturbing. These words have been used for centuries to support the vilification and extermination of Jews. As a representative of our city, we call on DeSean Jackson to stop spreading hate and bigotry and to become better educated about anti-Semitism.

On Sunday, Feb. 11, the Jewish communities of Delaware County will come together for one agenda: Make phone calls to raise funds for the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia. Super Sunday, as it’s called, is one of the most important days of the year for Jewish communities, and the one that I personally find to be the most inspiring. On this day, we officially jumpstart our annual campaign to fund all the critical and life-saving work that the Jewish Federation takes on every year. We join together to celebrate our success, connect with new members and learn more about where our support is most needed.
