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.

Today’s Jewish teens are tomorrow’s Jewish leaders.

Through two incredible experiential learning opportunities, teens in Greater Philadelphia practice Jewish values, preparing them to Carry the Light for the next generation.

There’s a program for everyone

Whether developing grantmaking skills or learning together with their Israeli peers, our region’s teens discover the importance of tikkun olam, tzedakah, leadership and philanthropy. Our unique programs help teens develop the skills, knowledge and experience to make a real impact on our world, both today and far into the future. From 9th-11th grade, participants will have fun while nurturing connections with their peers and taking meaningful action.

Teen Giving Project

Through tikkun olam and real-life grantmaking, 9th and 10th graders learn what it means to be a leader.

Diller Teen Fellows

Building meaningful bonds with Israeli peers, 10th and 11th graders grow their Jewish identities as both local and global citizens.
