Leaving Hate: A Conversation with Fred Cook

Join Tribe 12 and the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia’s Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) for an important conversation about one man’s journey into extreme hate, how he found his way out and what it can teach us about how bigotry spreads.


About Fred Cook: 

Fred Cook is many things: a South Philly native, a devoted father, the founder of a non-profit and a former Neo-Nazi. As a teenager, Fred longed for belonging, which local hate groups were all too willing to take advantage of. Now, in his 40s Fred has not only found his way out, but he is also in the process of converting to Judaism and has embraced a life dedicated to helping others leave hate groups.

For questions about this program or the Jewish Community Relations Council, contact Julian Morein, JCRC Program Associate, at jmorein@jewishphilly.org or 215.832.0651.


Tribe 12 connects people in their 20s/30s to Jewish life and community in Philadelphia today so they will choose to stay connected tomorrow. We welcome people who identify as Jewish, whose partner is Jewish, or who are exploring Judaism. Tribe 12 seeks to include all individuals regardless of gender or identity expression, religious history and practice, health and disability whether visible or invisible, and financial circumstances. For questions, to request accommodations, or just to say hi, reach out to yo@tribe12.org.
