- Share This Story
Tuesday, August 30, 2016 marks the launch of the Jewish Federation of Cleveland’s 2017 Campaign for Jewish Needs, which is the annual fundraising Campaign that supports our community’s vitality and vibrancy in the year ahead. The Campaign Launch Event is open to the public on August 30 at 7 p.m. at Park Synagogue East (27500 Shaker Blvd in Pepper Pike).
Hundreds are expected to gather to kick off the three-month-long Campaign and show their community pride. This year’s theme is inspiration and the Federation invites the community to ask themselves “What Inspires You?”
“Whether it is feeding the hungry, taking care of the sick, helping Jewish identities form, or educating our youth, all of these things come into play when I think about the Campaign,” said David F. Adler, General Campaign Chair of Pepper Pike. “We are successful in meeting the needs in our community, but there is so much more that we can do. I’m asking our community to do more, and do more together. Let’s aspire to leave no one behind.”
Featured speakers Howie Beigelman of Columbus, Cherie Dubyak of Pepper Pike, Noah Farrell of University Heights, Sara Hurand of Shaker Heights, and Duby Rodman of Beit Shean, Israel will share their personal, powerful stories of how support of the Campaign makes a difference in our community and around the world. Their stories of inspiration are not to be missed!
The Cleveland Jewish community is comprised of 80,000 people, and the national and international reach of the Federation encompasses tens of thousands more. Through the Campaign for Jewish Needs, people’s lives are changed for the better in Cleveland, Israel, and 70 countries around the globe. 91 cents of each dollar donated goes directly to the community for programs and services.
