Jewish Philly

Episode 3: Ed Rendell



This month we discuss the joys and complexities of our recent public Israel celebrations; talk with Rabbi Rachel Kobrin about domestic abuse through a Jewish lens; and we pay tribute to the first Jewish person ever elected to public office in the U.S. – in 1774. In honor of Israel’s 70th anniversary, we also sat down with politician and lawyer Gov. Ed Rendell to talk about his connections to Judaism, bringing Israeli businesses to Philadelphia, and of course, the Eagles Superbowl win.
