Come Together to Combat Hate

November 10, 2016

The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia strongly condemns the vandalism of empty storefronts in South Philadelphia yesterday which included a swastika, and the words “Seig Heil 2016.”  This form of intolerance, coming particularly on November 9th (the 78th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the “Night of Broken Glass” that was a precursor to the Holocaust) has no place in our city. We applaud the Police Department for their quick response and urge the entire community to come together to combat bigotry and hate.
