We remember philanthropist Mort November, who passed away on July 12, 2015, leaving a legacy our community will always cherish. Mort understood the importance of Jewish journeys for Cleveland – even for the community's youngest members. Thanks to Mort, and his wife Iris November, in 2012 Cleveland became the very first of 180 communities across the country to endow its PJ Library® program with the Jewish Federation of Cleveland.
