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.

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. Contact Rachel Gross to find out more.
