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.

For Israel70, we’re cooking up a can’t-miss event featuring Abington-born celebrity kosher chef Jamie Geller! This bestselling author and TODAY show regular is the founder and CEO of Kosher Network International, the publisher of JOYofKOSHER.com — and is returning to her hometown for an important fundraiser. Join Jamie on March 18th at Old York Road Temple-Beth Am in Abington to hear her story, learn some new Passover recipes, and the same time support Old York Road Kehillah’s ambulance campaign for American Friends of Magen David Adom.

And for a savory twist on a Purim favorite, try some pizza Hamantaschen — Jamie Geller’s delicious take on the traditional three-cornered cookie. Who says you can’t have dessert for dinner? For the recipe, click here. B’te-avon (bon appétit)!
