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.

“Wrestling Jerusalem tells the story of one American’s journey to thoroughly understand Israel and Palestine over many years, in many locations and by encountering many people. Throughout the dynamic 90-minute performance, playwright and actor Aaron Davidman gives voice to 17 characters including men, women, Jews, Muslims, Israelis, Arabs and Americans ranging the socioeconomic, religious and political spectrums.

Sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia’s Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC), Wrestling Jerusalem will appear at The Philadelphia Theatre Company (PFTC) October 18 – November 5, 2017.”
