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.

Celebrate summer with the sizzle of this simple, juicy burger on the grill. The sink-your-teeth pleasure calls to mind a fine bit of verse by the burger gourmand J. Wellington Wimpy:

There’s nothing in the world that can compare
With a hamburger, juicy and rare
A hamburger lives for the pleasure it gives;
It’s a thrill on the bill of fare.
Such heavenly food deserves the best:
A home and contentment beneath my vest.
There’s nothing in the world that’s so divine
As a hamburger, tender and fine.
