Statement on DeSean Jackson: The anti-Semitic comments displayed by DeSean Jackson on his instagram are deeply offensive and disturbing. These words have been used for centuries to support the vilification and extermination of Jews. As a representative of our city, we call on DeSean Jackson to stop spreading hate and bigotry and to become better educated about anti-Semitism.

Family philanthropy can be a hands-on experience that brings multiple generations together around shared goals and the desire to have an impact on the community and the world. The Jewish Federation can help you unite your family around your philanthropy and transmit your values to the next generation.

It is sometimes difficult to start a conversation about philanthropy with children or grandchildren. The Jewish Federation can work with your family, conducting multi-generational family meetings to help you express your feelings about your giving and the causes you care about. These meetings can be meaningful conversations that explore a family’s legacy, values and priorities.

The Jewish Federation endowment staff has tools and expertise to help facilitate these conversations.
