The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia strongly condemns hate speech in our community and throughout the world. When anti-Semitic hate speech was expressed by Temple University Professor Marc Lamont Hill, we immediately took action with national and local partners. We have and will continue to condemn comments that reject the state of Israel and the Jewish connection to our homeland.

“These are but two great examples of how Philadelphia has become a center of extraordinary Jewish communal life in America,” David Gold, a member of the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia’s Board of Trustees, told JNS.
