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.

The Create a Jewish Legacy program represents a shared commitment by Greater Philadelphia’s synagogues, agencies and day schools to work together, under the leadership of the Jewish Federation, to secure a more vibrant Jewish future for our communities.

A Community-Wide Partnership

The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia partners with 21 local organizations to raise the Jewish community’s awareness about the importance of endowments for a stable financial future. The Jewish Federation works with these partners to develop legacy plans and goals. We provide ongoing coaching, create marketing materials and develop long-range legacy-building strategies.

Create a Jewish Legacy helps Jewish organizations in our community approach their donors for legacy gifts in order to ensure that their valuable work can continue long into the future. This collaborative endowment program enables donors to fulfill their philanthropic goals while strengthening our Jewish community by sustaining vital programs, services and institutions.
