In July, I had the pleasure of traveling on the Campaign Chairs and Directors Mission (CCD) with our international partner, the Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA). The purpose of the CCD Mission is to give local Federation lay leaders an opportunity to see the work JFNA does overseas and bring back stories to share with donors of where campaign dollars are being utilized and how they are assisting Jews in need around the globe. This year's trip began in Paris and ended in Israel.
The Street Team (Raquel and Seth) met Brian Horowitz and Matt Stahm, the founders of Cleveland’s own “One948,” an Israeli themed apparel company, to hear what it is like to have a start-up in #JewishCleveland!
Ten college students learned about the importance of having a strong Jewish identity and expressing their passion for Israel at a program July 11 at the Jewish Federation of Cleveland’s Mandel Building in Beachwood.
Being part of Jewish Cleveland is special. It’s like nowhere else. No matter what stage of life you’re in, the Federation is here to support you. And I’m not just saying that, I speak from personal experience.
The Street Team (Seth and Raquel!) felt right at home with the Jordan and Rochie Berkowitz when we caught up with them in University Heights. As young parents of four and one on the way, Jordan and Rochie know a thing or two about raising a family in Cleveland.
