Meet Alyssa. She’s been to Israel before, but she’s ready to go back again – this time, for the entire summer! Alyssa is a participant with Onward Israel Cleveland, an 8-week program where students ages 20-25 live and intern in Tel Aviv. Follow Alyssa’s journey on this blog each week, and to learn more about all Israel opportunities, visit our I-Connect Page.
Our Federation family had a great day of giving back during our annual “Day of Caring.” Volunteers were all around Cleveland, doing their part for local foodbanks, nursing homes, and schools. A handful of volunteers chose to venture out to Cleveland Metropolitan School District’s (CMSD) Case Elementary, a Wraparound Services Initiative school, where many students struggle to succeed academically. Students at these schools also might not have enough to eat or a safe place to call home.
Jewish high school juniors and seniors interested in strengthening the Jewish community and making the world a better place are encouraged to apply for the 2015-2016 Maurice Saltzman Youth Panel (SYP), a program of the Jewish Federation of Cleveland.
Meet Sivan. She’s a Cleveland native, but this summer she’s living and interning in Israel! Sivan is a participant with Onward Israel Cleveland, a program that allows 20-25 year olds to spend their summers living and interning for 8 weeks in Tel Aviv. Follow Sivan’s journey every week to see all the amazing things she’s doing while in Tel Aviv! To learn more about this experience, visit our I-connect page.
It has been said that the sound of the violin resembles that of the human voice. The proximity will come clear both actually and symbolically on Sept. 27, when violins of singular provenance, played by musicians of singular prominence, star at Silver Hall.
