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.

We are so grateful you participated in one of our Men’s Missions to Israel. Please join us in this special opportunity to honor Mark Fishman. Mark and his family generously sent us on our trip and now we have the opportunity to recognize him by supporting a scholarship for an Atidim student in his name this one time, this year.


For many in Israel, participation in Atidim — a national program creating equal educational opportunities for students from every background — is life-changing.
