Congregation Rodeph Shalom and Temple Israel of Boston have made a friendly charitable wager concerning the upcoming Super Bowl, according to the Philadelphia synagogue’s Facebook page.


If the Eagles win, Temple Israel will donate 18 times the difference in scores to Philly Youth Basketball.

If the Eagles lose, Rodeph Shalom will donate 18 times the difference in scores to the CTE Center at Boston University Medical Center.

JTA reported that Temple Israel Associate Rabbi Matt Soffer is an Eagles fan, having grown up in Philadelphia, where he attended Rodeph Shalom.
