The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia vehemently condemns the Philly Palestine Coalition’s targeting of Goldie’s Falafel in a protest on Sunday evening solely because of their Jewish and Israeli ownership. As we have said before, this tactic only serves to intimidate, isolate, and scapegoat Israeli and Jewish businesses, further contributing to the alarming levels of hate against Jews nationwide. We stand with Governor Shapiro and other local officials in denouncing this protest for what it is: blatant antisemitism. We call on the community to counter this hatred by increasing their support to Jewish owned and pro-Israel businesses by purchasing gift cards from them as gifts for the holidays.
