Regardless of where you find yourself on the political spectrum, you can’t escape that politics are all around us during this election season. With the Democratic National Convention coming to the Wells Fargo Center on July 25-28 (and many volunteers arriving days earlier), Philadelphia is in the spotlight!
Some of our local Jewish organizations have been contacted to help find hosts for delegates and volunteers coming to the city. It would be an incredible mitzvah to be able to welcome visitors into our community and show them the great hospitality of the Center City Jewish community.
If you are interested in learning more about hosting, please contact us as soon as possible!
In the middle of a summer rife with political tensions, we have the opportunity to model the Jewish value of hospitality and to support people who are traveling great distances to be part of the democratic process.
Visit Philly has a comprehensive guide to the DNC, including schedules of related events for the entire month and a map of public art around the city, and the site is useful for residents and visitors alike.
