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.

“Mount Carmel Cemetery is once again a resting place.

In February, the historic Jewish cemetery at Frankford and Cheltenham Avenues was vandalized — about 275 headstones were damaged — but the burial ground’s monuments have been fully restored.

The effort was spearheaded by the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, and on Tuesday Mayor Kenney will get the first tour of the refurbished cemetery.”
