The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia is committed to providing essential resources during the international crisis caused by the COVID-19 Coronavirus. We are coordinating with all Jewish-affiliated organizations, schools, synagogues and agencies in the region to assess and address emerging needs. For resources and to donate to our emergency fund, please click below.

We are deeply saddened by the vandalism at the Mount Carmel Cemetery on Sunday, February 26, 2017. This type of disrespectful behavior is dangerous and disheartening.

The Jewish Federation continues to collect funds on behalf of Mount Carmel Cemetery.

Funds will be used for the ongoing maintenance of the cemetery. 503 headstones have been repaired and restored, but there are still many more headstones down in other parts of the cemetery, due either to natural causes or earlier acts of vandalism.

Please make a donation to help with clean up, repair, and security below.
