The Charles Eisenman Award, the Jewish Federation of Cleveland’s highest civic honor, was first awarded in 1924 by the Jewish Federation of Cleveland to recognize individuals or organizations for exceptional civic contributions.
We are outraged by yet another senseless, violent, anti-Semitic attack on an American synagogue, this time at the Chabad in Poway, California. This attack is a sad reminder of the threat that anti-Semitism and hate are to our world. Our thoughts and prayers are with the innocent victims, their families, and the Jewish community in San Diego.
By now I hope you have heard about the tremendous success of our 2020 Campaign for Jewish Needs! Our amazingly generous community raised $33.1 million by more than 13,000 donors representing 9,869 gifts, and Women’s Philanthropy raised $4.4 million from 3,550 donors. This record-setting number will allow us to do so much good for those in need in Cleveland, Israel and around the world.
